The Arts Council of Indianapolis announces an opportunity for an undergraduate or graduate student, or a recent B.A./M.A. holder, to serve as an intern with its Public Art department. The department consists of one full-time Director and a Coordinator shared with the Artist Services department, in addition to volunteers, service-learning students, or fellowship students as needed.
Eligibility: Current undergraduate junior or senior, recent college or advanced studies graduate, or current M.A. or Ph.D. candidate. Community college students must have completed the equivalent of 16 semester-long courses to be eligible for this opportunity.
Commitment: 15 hours per week for 10 weeks (flexible; 2-3 days/wk)
Stipend: $1,500.00 for the summer (based on $10/hr for 150 hours total)
Start date: Week of May 28, 2018 (flexible)
End date: Week of August 6, 2018 (flexible)
Credit: May be used for community service or independent study credit upon coordination with student and student’s home institution
Duties: The intern will primarily assist the Public Art staff with the Indy East Art Peace and Cultural Corridor Consortium Indy (3CIndy) projects. Indy East Art Peace, a collaboration with Near East Area Renewal (NEAR), is empowering a cohort of Near Eastside artists, Near Eastside residents, and East District police officers in planning community building through arts-based activity, with the goal of preventing crime in the Rural Street corridor. The 3CIndy project is a collaboration with Transit Drives Indy, and is working with six artists for creative placemaking along the new Red Line Rapid Transit and community-engaged design for the future Purple Line Rapid Transit.
In addition to performing assigned tasks, the intern will likely be exposed to many facets of public art work including project meetings, selection processes, on-site installations, master planning, and community engagement. The intern may also participate in the planning and staffing of a day-long public art workshop to be held in Indianapolis on June 29. In addition, the intern may be exposed to other Arts Council departments including Artist Services, the Indianapolis Artsgarden, Gallery 924 at the Arts Council, Grant Services, Arts Education, and Marketing.
The intern may also choose to work on a public-art-related independent project with departmental supervision, as desired or as time permits.
Schedule: The internship schedule is flexible. The intern may work two or three blocks of time per week as convenient, totaling on average 15 hours per week, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The total number of hours for this internship is 150 during the course of the summer. Some evening or weekend work may be needed.
