Fellows

The Miranda Family Fellowship

The Miranda Family Fellowship was developed to support emerging artists from communities that are historically underrepresented. The Fellowship is a collaboration with partner institutions and provides wrap-around programming to support artistic development, increase understanding of the business aspects of their careers, and connect their artistry with advocacy.

Fellows are vetted and selected through our partner institutions’ application processes. Please see application opportunities by clicking on our partners’ tiles at the bottom of this page.

Supporting Ongoing Creative Growth 

Developing our Fellows’ creativity doesn’t stop at our partner institutions. We continue Fellows’ artistic growth through ongoing workshops, seminars and conversations.

We tailor specific workshops based on the needs of our Fellows. Past programming has included writing seminars with guest artist Ren Dara Santiago, collaborative readings of work, self-tape intensives and so much more.

Holistic Approach to Professional Development

As Fellows prepare for their careers in the entertainment and arts & culture industries, we ensure they have the tools to navigate business as emerging artists.

As Fellows enter early-career status, they often encounter contracts and potential job offers. We help them assess these opportunities through resources like our on-call entertainment lawyer and network.

The Miranda Family Fellows Showcase

Due to COVID-19, many of our Fellows’ school showcases were cancelled, postponed, or released in 2020 when there wasn’t much attention nor work available. In response, we created a virtual showcase ourselves.
