Highlights from Cave Canem’s Working Fellowship and Internship Program
Designed to cultivate the next generation of arts administrators of color, the working fellowship and internship program at Cave Canem teaches fellows and interns the ins and outs of nonprofit administration. Workshops & Administrative Fellow Della Green notes, “My skills and experience in arts administration have improved immensely during my time at Cave Canem.” Throughout the fellowship year, participants attend working lunches with established arts administrators to learn about their work in the field.
Since the start of the year, the Cave Canem team has had the pleasure of lunching with five arts professionals including, William Johnson, Program Director at Lambda Literary; Kevin Larimer, Editor in Chief of Poets & Writers Magazine; Novella Ford, Manager of Public Programs at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture; Kima Jones, book publicist and founder of Jack Jones Literary Arts; and Nikay Paredes, Programs Coordinator at the Academy of American Poets. About the meetings, Programs & Communications Fellow Natalie Desrosiers explains, “I’m so grateful for the rare opportunity to connect with incredibly brilliant professionals who have provided me with a deeper clarity about my own professional journey.”
