Friday, January 28, 2022

The ArtsBuild Opportunity Fellows program places college juniors, seniors, or recent graduates in a 10-week, part-time (10 hours per week) paid work experience with a local arts organization from mid-May through July 2022. The program also includes professional development, networking, and community engagement experiences. The work experiences are provided in cooperation with our grant-funded arts organizations, our Community Arts Partners. This is an in-person work opportunity. 

ArtsBuild is seeking innovators and forward thinkers as participants in the fellowship program who share in ArtsBuild’s mission to build a stronger community through the arts. Candidates should possess strong communication skills, a willingness to learn, and a desire to work with others in a collaborative setting. Fellows will receive a $1,500 stipend from ArtsBuild for the duration of the program. Women, people with disabilities, BIPOC and members of other under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

ArtsBuild will begin accepting applications for Opportunity Fellows on Friday, Feb. 4. Applications will be accepted until 3 p.m. on Friday, March 4.
