The Intercultural Leadership Institute (ILI) announces their 2017-2018 inaugural fellows today.
Conceived of by non-profit regional and national arts organizations - Alternate ROOTS, First Peoples Fund, National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC), and PA’I Foundation - ILI is a newly formed, paradigm-shifting personal and leadership development program for artists, culture bearers, and other arts professionals.
Its purpose is to give voice to arts practitioners and advocates who are less represented in the dominant culture of the United States, including those whose lives reflect the traditional heritages of African Americans, Native Americans, native Hawaiians, Latinx culture, and other communities and cultures throughout the U.S.
