Paula Altvater Fellowship
Cornerstone’s Altvater Fellowship program provides professional development to individuals interested in theater and community.
About the Altvater Fellowship
Fellows work full-time with Cornerstone on management or production aspects of current programming over an eight-week residency. Each year’s Fellowship focus is determined based on the needs and schedule of Cornerstone’s production schedule.
The Fellowship includes participation in bi-weekly company meetings, weekly staff meetings, and inclusion in company-wide community engagement activities and/or planning.
Successful fellowship candidates have prioritized interest in community-engaged theater and have some understanding of Cornerstone’s mission. They are curious, grounded, and ready to be immersed in the daily running of a theater company from the mundane to the extraordinary.
The Fellowship takes place in Los Angeles at Cornerstone’s office and/or on location of a community residency. The Fellowship includes a $2000 honorarium. Travel to/within Los Angeles and housing are not provided. Applicants must be at least 21 years old.
