OVERVIEW -  The Artists (in) Fellowship program is designed to equip a select group of talented emerging artists with the skills and community necessary to support a successful career in the visual arts. Fellows will be provided with monthly one-on-one advisement from an accomplished professional, group master classes and will participate in collaborative projects. Throughout the program they will also be required to assist their Advisor/Mentor with tasks in the Advisor’s field of expertise, creating an opportunity for learning and growth. The program will culminate in a public viewing of the Fellows' artwork at a prestigious art fair in New York City.

About Compass Needle

"Our hypothesis is that serving others supports and accelerates our own self-interests - that each of us does better when we work with others mind. There are many ways to look at this truth and so many ancient sources that assert its power. We have designed an experiment to test it.

We are commissioning artists to create projects in response to this question: If we care for others in our decision-making, might we actually accelerate the fulfillment of our own dreams? We hope not only the resulting works of art will bear this out, but that also the very process itself will demonstrate the "AND" relationship between service and self-interest, and reveal the false myth of "either/or".

Our society began as an experiment of hope. It's an inspired idea that invites us to continue to find better ways to live as individuals within a community. We hope our venture will add to the conversation, and we welcome your comments and questions."
