YALE-CHINA ARTS FELLOWSHIP The Yale-China Arts Fellowship brings emerging artists from Greater China for a six-month residency at Yale University. The experience is an opportunity for recipients to encounter a rich, contrasting cultural community, to collaborate with American artists and communities, and to spark their craft and careers. The Arts Fellowships promote the goals of the 114-year-old Yale-China Association, which fosters exchange and collaboration between Chinese and American people and inspires service and deeper understanding between our two countries. www.yalechina.org artsfellowship
Artistic Growth Fellows develop their craft by participating in classes, receiving guidance by their peer and faculty mentor, and collaborating with artists from various disciplines. Fellows will be in constant contact with leaders in the arts through visits to New Haven organizations and venues, New York events, the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville, Kentucky, and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven.
Service-Learning Service-Learning opportunities provide fellows with experience in engaging communities, providing specialized services to those who would otherwise not have access, and reflecting on these interactions as a means for personal growth. Fellows meet with staff weekly to discuss these experiences and to receive program guidance during their time in the United States.
Project Fellows enter the six-month residency with a project proposal that will be developed over the course of a year and a half with a final presentation at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas. While projects are openended, Yale-China encourages project proposals that are community-based or have a component of community interaction, in order to consider innovative methods of building community through the arts.

OPPORTUNITIES AT YALE Yale’s liberal arts, professional, and graduate education resources offer innovative perspectives from a constellation of thought leaders. Paired with leaders of the New Haven’s non-profit sector, HKETONY Arts Fellows have accessibility to a spectrum of global and community leaders. Yale-China advisers work with the HKETO-NY Arts Fellows to craft their six-month residency in New Haven, enabling the artists to take advantage of Yale’s extensive fields of research, art openings and performing arts premieres, up-to-date pedagogical practices and resources, and the student body from which HKETO-NY Arts Fellows might find collaborators for their projects. Pictured here: Emily Coates, former New York City Ballet dancer and mentor to Yale-China HKETO-NY Arts Fellow Yang Hao; other mentors have included the associate dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and the associate dean of the Yale School of Art.
OUR PARTNERS Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, New York Set up in 1983, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York is the office of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government tasked to promote and strengthen the economic and trade links between Hong Kong and the 31 eastern states of the USA. The office works regularly with Yale-China to enhance cultural ties between Hong Kong and New Haven. International Festival of Arts and Ideas As one of Yale-China’s primary partners for the Arts Fellowship, the International Festival of Arts and Ideas is a 15-day festival of performing arts, lectures, and conversations that celebrates the greatest artists and thinkers from around the world. The Festival provides guidance and serves as a platform for fellows to showcase or workshop their projects, which reach a stage of maturity by the time of the Festival in June a year after the fellows’ residency. Yale University Yale-China’s partnership with Yale University began when a group of Yale graduates and faculty members established Yale-China in 1901. Yale’s sophisticated network allows Yale-China to provide annual exchange programs for students, ongoing institutional capacity building for administrators in China and Yale, and tailored experiences for faculty visits. www.yalechina.org/artsfellowship
