Yale-China Arts Fellowship


Artists bring a whole new dimension to understanding and experiencing the world. The Yale-China arts program builds a community of Hong Kong artists and arts managers as cultural leaders through six-month fellowships at Yale’s schools of art, architecture, drama, and music. Hong Kong artists have been awarded Yale-China fellowships since 2015, and in 2019, Yale-China expanded its program strategy to activate arts managers from Hong Kong.

Our Partner: International Festival of Arts & Ideas

The Yale-China Arts Fellowship aims to carry on Yale-China's mission of inspiring people to learn and serve together—through the arts. As one of Yale-China's primary partners for the arts fellowship, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas is a 15-day festival of performing arts, lectures, and conversations that celebrates the greatest artists and thinkers from around the world. Each June, the Festival takes over the theaters, open spaces, and courtyards of New Haven, Connecticut, attracting an attendance of more than 100,000 to its events, of which more than 80% of are completely free to the public.

The Festival provides guidance and serves as a platform for fellows to showcase or workshop their projects in June.
