Whether you sing, dance, play an instrument, juggle, perform acrobatic or magic acts, draw, design costumes or have another unique talent, we want to see it!

Virtual Talent Showcase Fellowship is not a competition, but a showcase of exceptional talent from local area teens in a project with global reach.

@Creative.fellowship provides tools and supports creative talents on their path to the limelight. Decades of research have shown that engaging in the arts helps young people to become more engaged, resilient, and better able to cope with life’s challenges.

@Creative.fellowship is a virtual safe space for young rising talents to showcase their gifts! It’s also a place for like-minded people to gather and stay connected to a larger international community during the COVID-19 times.

@Creative.fellowship is not only a way to break into the global community and make friends around the world, but it is a safe, educational, and entertaining way to learn about cultures and connect with many art professionals under one roof— all while the participants receive undivided attention as they showcase their talents

@Creative.fellowship provides tools and platforms to the selected talents on their path to the limelight.
The 2022 @Creative.fellowship program is based on a new concept developed in accordance with the demands of the Covid-19 pandemic’s realities.

The program consists of three integrated modules:

Crack the riddle!

A new language is a riddle, but once you crack it, the doors to many opportunities open. 100 online language classes taught by local teachers and native speakers will be offered.

Decode your culture!
Once you know the codes of your native culture, it is easier to conquer the world.
Through a combination of fun introductions to art history and interactive practices, the fellows will learn to unravel the cultural codes of the world around them.


Easy and fun learning with no performance grades or judging. Only participation matters.


The goal is to bring the participants’ English-speaking skills up to a level comfortable enough for interacting and reaching their targets together with fellows from other countries.


Classes are based on an active collaboration between students and teachers via an online platform.


The goal of this art collaboration is to contribute to the creation of a global virtual art exhibition!

Conquer the world!

Your talent leads you to the limelight, but our skilled guidance makes this path shorter. A team of art educators will conduct the series of online movement and music masterclasses for project participants.


By working together, the performance project participants will stage and videotape a unified, global online performance.


he goal is to create a global artistic performance that would be noticed by the online creative and professional community.
