Timbrel Artist-in-Residence

We invite you to submit a proposal for the 2018 National Havurah Committee Summer Institute, to be held July 23-29, at The University of Hartford in West Hartford, CT.


The Timbrel Artist-in-Residence Program seeks artists with talent and passion to share at the 2018 Havurah Institute. Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Past artists have represented the disciplines of music (vocal and instrumental), theater and storytelling, puppetry, poetry, visual arts, and dance. Click here to apply. For questions, contact us at air@havurah.org.

The National Havurah Committee is a network of diverse individuals and communities dedicated to Jewish living and learning, community building, and tikkun olam (repairing the world). As a Jewish community, we are non-denominational, multi-generational, egalitarian, and volunteer-run. At the NHC, every student is a teacher and every teacher is a student. Artists-in-Residence reflect the diversity of our community, representing a wide range of ages, professions, and home communities, and they are encouraged to participate fully in all Institute programming throughout the week.

Each Artist-in-Residence will teach a four-session course, and will also visit Kids Camp and assist with community-wide programming. This position includes a credit for free Institute tuition, room and board, as well as a stipend ($1500), potential coverage of tuition for family members, and a small budget. NHC membership dues are required of all registrants, including Artists-in-Residence.

Our theme this year is Speak to the Heart (“dabru al lev”), taken from the haftarah for Shabbat Nachamu, which will be read at this year’s Institute. The Timbrel Artist-in-Residence Committee is interested in course proposals that use your particular art to help students explore this theme.

Proposals, to be submitted online, are due by May 31, 2018 at 11:59 PM. Proposals received after this date will not be considered. Please contact the Timbrel Artist-in-Residence Committee if you have any questions.

We look forward to reading your proposals!
