2023 MacDowell Fellows Reunion

November 18, 2023

The Fellows Engagement Committee was delighted to hold the 2023 MacDowell Fellows Reunion on Saturday, November 18, 2023 at the Chocolate Factory Theater in Long Island City, NY. Over 120 Fellows gathered for the reunion, which included an open mic, a book swap, a raffle that raised funds for future Fellowships, and important time to connect.

In honor of the 2023 Edward MacDowell Medalist Alanis Obomsawin and as an acknowledgement of MacDowell's commitment to Native and Indigenous communities, this year’s raffle proceeds will help partially support work at MacDowell honoring Native/Indigenous heritage.
