Job Details

DESCRIPTION

SoulCenter is a creative content development space based in Atlanta, Ga and Montgomery, AL focused toward Creatives 18-35. Our vision for social change is two-fold: We believe that the multidisciplinary development of future creative leaders in acting, writing, and producing is essential to creating a world with social and artistic changemakers. We also believe that creative physical spaces can be used to reshape the fabric of communities and address social inequities in the Deep South.

Our Fellowship Program, focused toward Black/ Afro-Latinx/African and Afro-descendant folks across the diaspora, is informed by our Soul Methodology in Acting, Writing, and Producing, brings in a cohort of up to six creative leaders. We encourage queer, trans, non-binary and folks of all abilities to apply.

Through this 12 month program, fellows learn to develop their own approach to creating work within each of the three disciplines while growing in their confidence as multi-disciplinarians. Each week, cohorts have personal mentorship sessions with industry professionals, weekly cohort planning meetings, and will each create digital pieces from inception to completion produced by SoulCenter.

The goal of this program is to make space for more Black Creatives to be well-rounded in their art and to have agency and skill enough to create and devise their own work in a group.

Each Fellow will receive a stipend for the year and final projects will be funded and produced by SoulCenter.

Due to Covid19, our 2021-2022 Fellows Program will be open to applicants from across the country, as most of the programs will be digital. If any in-person gatherings occur, we will follow strict Covid19 measures.
