Take it to the next level and take advantage of some of these upcoming opportunities.

It’s time to receive acknowledgement for all that hard work. See some upcoming professional opportunities for reviews and competitions this June.



Deadline: July 4, 2014.

The foundation’s Emerging Artist Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute was established in 2013 to provide an annual opportunity to an emerging visual artist who is at least 25 years old and who needs time and space to explore ideas and start new projects. Artist fellows will receive a one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, which includes a room with private bath, studio space, and a $500 travel stipend.

Napa Valley The CanDo Spirit Award

The CanDo Spirit Award, given under the auspices of the 2014 Napa Valley Give!Guide, is a $1000 cash award presented to one exceptional young professional in the local nonprofit sector.  All Napa County nonprofit agencies are invited to nominate one outstanding full-time employee under the age of 31. At the Give!Guide Kick-Off Party in November, the 2014 winner will receive the check for $1,000, a handsome plaque, and a big round of applause in recognition of their work.

Nomination requires two forms, one from the nonprofit employer and one from the nominee. You can find both applications on the 2014 Napa Valley Give!Guide website: www.NapaValleyGiveGuide.org.

Applications must be submitted by 11:50 PM Thursday, July 24.

Engaging Audiences in the Mobile Space

July 9, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. (ET)

There’s no question that the capabilities and usage of mobile devices continue to rise as technology advances. That means new and existing audiences are using mobile devices to search for your organization, access information about it, and even purchase tickets. If your arts organization has yet to embrace mobile, you’ll soon be left behind. As more arts organizations adopt new forms of technology to engage audiences, you must evaluate your own organization’s (and audience’s) mobile needs and act on them. In this webinar, you will hear how organizations have used mobile in innovative (and in some cases, free!) ways. REGISTER NOW.
