Six Points Fellowship

The Six Points Fellowship supports individual artists in the New York area who want to develop new projects with a Jewish focus, theme or element.

We believe that creative expression is essential to Jewish community, identity, and meaning and the Six Points Fellowship was created to support the artists who contribute to that process. The two-year fellowship program provides 12 artists with a living stipend, financial project support, professional development workshops, and ongoing peer and professional-led learning opportunities. The fellowship includes artists working in visual arts, music, and performing arts.

During the 2-year fellowship, artists will create and present their diverse projects to young audiences in the New York area, through programs such as live performances, audio recordings, and gallery events. The fellowship will create a supportive, nurturing environment that encourages creative interactions between artists, artworks, and the public, and creates a space for personal and professional development and growth.

We are very pleased to announce our first cohort of Six Points Fellows: Alina Bliumis, Gabrielle Brechner, Clare Burson, Ofri Cnaani, Galeet Dardashti, Andrea Dezso, Dan Fishback, David Griffin, Saar Harari, Jeremiah Lockwood, Avishai Mekonen, and Dan Safer.

The Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists is a partnership of Avoda Arts, JDub Records, and the Foundation for Jewish Culture, and is made possible with major funding from UJA-Federation of New York.

The Six Points Fellowship is currently a pilot program, and does not have another cycle in place at this time. Please sign up for our mailing list if you would like information about future deadlines.
