Long Island Veteran Arts Fellowships

JHP has exciting opportunities in Babylon and Huntington for two unemployed Veterans to train as Arts Administrators with skills in photography over 2018 through paid part-time Fellowships. Our preference is for applicants from the Wyandanch community. We are looking for Veterans wanting to use their leadership and organization skills and who love the arts generally and/or photography in particular, and would be interested in developing careers in arts administration and/or photography. Previous experience in the arts and/or photography is highly desirable. As an “Arts Fellow” you will receive hands on training and experience in key aspects of managing arts organizations, including in administration, fundraising, festival and event organizing. You will also receive professional training and plenty of opportunity to build your photography skills.

Interested? Please apply by e-mail to Jessica at info@jhproject.org with your résumé and a cover letter. Your cover letter should explain why you are interested in the Fellowships and any paid or other experience you think may be relevant. Please ensure that your application is received by no later than March 26, 2018 and that you are able to start your training in early to mid April.
