CEC ArtsLink Welcomes Our 2012 Fellows!

26 Sep

This year fourteen artists and arts managers are coming from thirteen countries to participate in their ArtsLink Residencies in visual arts and media. Having been chosen through a vigorous application process, this cohort of artists will be hosted by established arts organizations for five weeks all across the United States.

This blog is their opportunity to remember, record, and share their experiences and impressions during their voyages. For many it is their first time in the United States. For us it is the next great step in creating and developing of new strong links between our countries, cultures and arts.

We salute ArtsLink Residencies Fellows 2012 and wish them best of luck!
