ILI Applicant Support Call
Thank you for recording the call!
Could you put the link to the specific page with those boxes (Ili Mississippi, Ili Lakota etc)? Thanks!
are the intesives part of the ILI or independent? if part of the ILI are the same for each cohort or different?
Do you look for geographic diversity from the participants when you are choosing a cohort?
Wonderful to witness and affirmation of Kumu Vicky's offering to use the Hawaiian term of "ili" for the entire program. If I may offer, in the indigenous Kalinga tradition (Northen Philippine Cordillera region popularized by iconic tattoo practitioner Whang Od), ili means village!
Based on your past cohorts, how many applications do you expect this year?
Some logistics questions - When does the program start? What is expected before the first intensive in September? Are the dates set for the online meetings?
Can an fellow apply as all 3 (artist, culture bearer, and arts manager), or is there a preference to focus in one area?
Could I bring my infant child with me to these gatherings?
Is there a guideline document that can be downloaded/referenced or is this located on the website?
What have you found to be more compelling applications? Video submissions or written applications? Do you have any tips that strengthen for either format?
how do you define/understand culture bearer? practitioner/teacher of traditional cultural arts?
Do you have to be a NALAC member to apply to ILI?
Wendy, Alternate ROOTS
Dianalara- no you do not need to be a member of any organization to apply for ILI.
do you accept applications that have a focus in strengthening your role as Festival organizer
could you send a written sample and a video sample
or just one
I’d love to get a sense of the time commitment. How frequent and long are the online meetings? What kind of work happens outside of intensives and online meetings, and how much time should participants plan to dedicate to any work outside meetings?
Are people notified if they are not accepted, or if they don’t make it this year, but are encouraged to apply for the next cohort?
Can applicants’ scope of work be broader than just U.S. based?
Is the goal of the program process or product based?
is there a project or piece of creative work , either individual or collective that ILI fellows engage in during their fellowship year?
Are participants chosen on the applications alone or is there an interview process as well?
echoing Shari Weinberger Question

Maraming Salamat ILI!
Thank you for this!
Thank you, Carrie and Wendy!
