This one's in Wales. Three North American critics and three Welsh critics will be chosen for the program, which runs this summer. Deadline is April 20.

The program will involve two workshops, the first in Wales from May 24-30th 2009, and the second in Washington, DC from June 23-29th 2009.

Designed to develop coverage and critical discussion of Welsh arts, the program offers participants the opportunity to join intensive transatlantic workshops focused equally on developing their critical abilities, international discussion of Welsh art forms and developing relationships between the media in Wales and North America.  The program will also encompass bilingualism and takes as its starting point coverage of Welsh activity in Washington DC during the Smithsonian Folklife celebrations this summer.

Over the course of the program time will be spent in both Wales and Washington DC, with participants attending writing workshops and a variety of performances alongside gallery visits.  They will write reviews, discuss their work together and explore the role of the art critic.

At NAJP we still get a steady trickle of inquiries about when we might resume the fellowships that were at the heart of the program for 12 years. Short answer is "no time soon" since there doesn't seem to be anyone interested in funding them right now. But the best arts journalism fellowships out there right now are the USC Annenberg/Getty fellowships.

Each year the program takes six mid-career arts journalists and brings them to LA for three weeks for a non-stop cultural diet. (disclosure - I teach some of the sessions, and fellow ARTicles blogger Sasha Anawalt is director of the program). Here's the official description for this year's fellowships, scheduled for November 1-22:

The 2008 USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Program is a three week, mid-career  education fellowship for arts, culture and entertainment editors, producers and writers. This is an international program for six to seven professional arts editors, critics and reporters from print, radio, television and online who cover the performing and visual arts, architecture, literature, entertainment and pop culture - and who own these beats either as generalists or specialists who focus on one beat.  Staff, freelancers and self-employed Web journalists are welcome.


This year in my part of the fellowship, we'll be talking about the idea of arts journalist as digital entrepreneur. We'll put together stories using video, podcasts, and text, incorporating all aspects of digital media. What's the best way to tell a story and get it out to the world? The idea isn't so much to turn fellows into multimedia whizes as it is to explore what's possible and try to think creatively about how to cover culture. So even if you've never held a camera or made a podcast, here's an opportunity to explore. Applications are due June 16
