This event takes place at our Brooklyn location.
In celebration of its 30th year, the New York Foundation for the Arts brings a few of its past fellows, including Luc Sante, Amanda Stern, Donna Masini, and Deanna Fei. Memoirist and NYFA board member Said Sayrafiezadeh hosts!
The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) was founded in 1971 to empower artists at critical stages in their creative lives. Each year we award $650,000 in cash grants to individual artists in all artistic disciplines. Our fiscal sponsorship program is one of the oldest and most reputable in the country and helps artists and organizations raise and manage an average of $4 million annually. Our Learning programs provide thousands of artists with professional development training and support, and our website, NYFA.org, received over 1.2 million visitors last year and has information about more than 12,000 opportunities and resources available to artists in all disciplines.
RSVP encouraged, but not required.
Luc Sante's "Low Life "is a portrait of America's greatest city, the riotous and anarchic breeding ground of modernity.
Deanna Fei was just five-and-a-half months pregnant when she inexplicably went into labor. Minutes later, she met her tiny baby who clung to life support inside a glass box. Fei was forced to confront terrifying issues: How to be the mother of a child she could lose at any moment. Whether her daughter would survive another day--and whether she should.
