New Village Arts is thrilled to announce that Executive Artistic Director Kristianne Kurner is one of four recipients of the 2018 Clare Rose Sabbatical Award from Fieldstone Leadership Network!

With the aim of increasing the capacity of nonprofit organizations by offering time for the leader to replenish his or her energy while providing opportunities for others in the organization to take the helm in leading, the Clare Rose Sabbatical program is in its fifth year. The grant is valued at $50,000 and covers the salary and benefits for the leader to take time away to reflect and renew, an organizational consultant to assist in the planning, implementation period and the return of the leader, a fund for staff development and stipends for those leading during the three-month sabbatical.


Kristianne and New Village Arts join 18 other organizations in receiving a sabbatical grant, including this year’s other recipients: Mercy House, HomeAid Orange County, and transcenDANCE Youth Arts Project; and previous recipients: Mama’s Kitchen, Pacific Arts Movement, American Diabetes Foundation OC, Grandma’s House of Hope, Families Forward, OneOC, Ivey Ranch Park, Malashock Dance, I Love A Clean San Diego, Susan G. Komen Orange County, Mainly Mozart, Make A Wish San Diego, North County Lifeline, 211 San Diego and The Ecology Center.


The Fieldstone Leadership Network is the only local foundation in the Orange and San Diego Counties to offer sabbaticals to nonprofit leaders and their organizations.


We hope you will join us in sending a huge congratulations to Kristianne and the NVA administrative staff!
