Event Details

The Urban Arts Leadership Program (UALP) is a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) and was designed to increase the participation of groups that have been historically underrepresented, particularly those of color, in the management of cultural and artistic organizations. UALP is a pipeline for high achieving young leaders (college seniors or recent graduates) who have demonstrated a strong commitment to this goal. The 10-month fellowship runs from September to June and carries a $5,000 stipend.

UALP offers professional development, networking opportunities, and Fellowship placements with stipends for up to ten aspiring arts administrators. UALP connects these emerging leaders with arts organizations, arts service organizations, and art driven businesses that are committed to equity and inclusion. The Fellowship process provides 3 defined components for each participating Fellow, including:

• A four-month customized group capacity building intensive series

• A matching process for placements within Partnership/Host organizations

• A six-month project implementation period where Fellows are embedded within an arts or cultural organization. That organization must submit an application to become a UALP Partner/Host.
