Calling all foster youth ages 18-24! Dancers, visual artists, poets, writers, musicians, creators, dreamers, activists, ~ any enthusiastic individual who is willing to try new things!
FOSTER UP provides opportunities for foster care youth to develop confidence, creativity, and educational and artistic goals. The goals of FOSTER UP align perfectly with Dr. Kerry English’s life-long dedication to both foster and abused youth as well as to the arts.
The Dr. Kerry English Creative Fellowship is an 8-month program designed specifically for foster youth interested in the arts. Individuals accepted into the program will be matched with an artist in their creative field of interest, who will guide the fellow in their artistic pursuits.
As a fellow, you will:
Connect with a mentor in your respective field
Develop and grow your artistic talents
Meet other artists
Showcase your work
Explore your interests
