While our Fellowship Program is on pause, we are pleased to announce this new initiative at Lighthouse Works.
Through a series of three programs, Lighthouse Works Together will connect our Fellowship Program’s alumni with our island community to encourage moments of creativity, curiosity, and togetherness – even as we remain apart.
Workshops Hosted via Zoom, these art-making workshops will be designed and led by members of our alumni group. Each 15-student workshop, developed for Teens, Young Adults, and Adults, will utilize a kit that will be available for pickup at Lighthouse Works.
Wonderings We’ve asked past fellowship recipients to create guided individual or family activities based around something they found compelling during their time on Fishers Island. Posted weekly, these activities will encourage you to look, think, and make in the environs of FI.
Coffee Talks Join us for a series of Virtual Studio Visits, hosted twice-a-month by Program Director, Tryn Collins, to catch an intimate view of what is happening in the studios of some of your favorite past fellows. Get an automatically generated invite by emailing
Our LIGHTHOUSE WORKS TOGETHER Workshops and Studio Visits are on-going. We hope you’ll join us next for a genre writing workshop with writer Adrienne Celt (’19).
Later this month we will be launching a Reading Group focused on past Lighthouse House Works Fellows. The first book we will be reading and discussing with its author is Angie Cruz’s Dominicana. Stay tuned!
LIGHTHOUSE WORKS TOGETHER is a series of programs that connect past fellowship recipients with our island community, which we hope will encourage moments of creativity, curiosity, and togetherness even as we remain apart.
