Eligibility:

Keywords:

The Song Between Our Stars was founded in 2020 as a way of documenting creative reactions to contemporary issues.

We seek diverse, divergent, and atypical voices and to showcase work from emerging and established writers and artists alike. We seek literature and art that explores themes evident in current events, or is focused on contradictions and divisions: within our selves, within and between communities, and the various ways that individuals and groups nevertheless overwhelm their separateness.

The Song Between Our Stars is produced in both print and digital editions. Artwork should display well in A5 landscape. Photography, digital art, painting, sketches, collage and photos of 3D work are accepted.

Each June, NXTHVN welcomes up to seven artists, two curators, and eight New Haven high school students to its annual Fellowship and Apprenticeship programs. Through a proprietary curriculum that focuses on mentorship, professional development, and skills training, members of the cohort cultivate their individual practices within a collaborative, community-driven context. Each fellow mentors a local high school apprentice, providing them with hands-on instruction in studio and curatorial practices. Through active participation in NXTHVN’s year-long programs, early-career artists and curators make the personal strides and interpersonal connections that advance their careers.   

NXTHVN’s year-long Fellowships provide:  

  • a generous stipend disbursed quarterly throughout the Fellowship year, which runs from early June to late May
  • optional, partially-subsidized housing in Dixwell, New Haven
  • dedicated work and/or studio space with 24-hour access
  • monthly professional development workshops facilitated by field experts
  • culminating exhibition and catalogue organized by curatorial fellows and featuring work by studio fellows
  • opportunity to design and participate in artist-led projects and public programming
  • vocabulary and skills for navigating the art market that often go untaught in MFA programs

Expectations include:  

  • completing the entire 11-month residency program
  • relocation to New Haven 
  • spending at least five hours per week mentoring a high school apprentice

Eligibility:

Each year, NXTHVN welcomes seven emerging artists, two curators, and five high school apprentices to participate in its highly-competitive Fellowship and Apprenticeship programs. With a focus on mentorship, professional development, and hands-on training, the cohort works collaboratively to cultivate their practices within the context of New Haven’s creative community. 

The NXTHVN team, with Deborah Berke Partners, has designed a unique shared environment—within a state-of-the-art facility—where artists, curators and the local community converge to make art, exchange ideas, and extend their networks.

NXTHVN’s comprehensive, year-long Fellowships provide dedicated work space, a generous stipend, a rigorous professional development curriculum, and ongoing mentorship opportunities for early-career artists and curators. 

Some examples of our workshops and seminars include: Strategic Planning, Money Management, Contracts (Art and Law), Online Portfolio Development, Visiting Curator Discussions and Critiques, Professional Artist Talks, and Gallery and Collection Tours.

NXTHVN’s unique pedagogy focuses on both the theoretical and practical components of establishing and nurturing a sustainable art practice. Our curriculum features bi-monthly workshops and seminars led by esteemed industry leaders and visiting lecturers.

In addition to active participation in cohort-building activities, each fellow mentors a local high school student through our Apprenticeship Program to ensure the next generation of talent is given a chance to excel in the arts.
