Job Title: Arts Engagement Project Coordinator
Full-/Part-Time: Part-Time (25 hrs/week)
Regular/Temporary: Temporary (80-weeks, June 2019-December 2020)
Salary: $25/hr, Total: $50,000
The Arts Engagement Project Coordinator will work to connect the community to KIB and the Arts Council of Indianapolis’ new Indy Art & Seek program to enhance public spaces and make public art more prevalent and accessible to residents throughout Indianapolis. The Arts Engagement Project Coordinator will work within KIB’s Community Engagement Department and report to the Neighborhood Engagement Program Manager. This person will support the implementation of the Indy Art & Seek program by connecting residents with opportunities to be involved in developing art in their neighborhoods and by performing related administrative tasks. Because of the community-facing nature of this position, the work will frequently require evening and weekend hours. Because of the short-term nature of the project, a commitment to the full 80 weeks is expected.
A driving outcome for this project is ensuring access to, and a voice in creating, public art for all Indianapolis residents, particularly in lower-income neighborhoods that have traditionally been underserved in arts, culture and green infrastructure. Indy Art & Seek will connect six new, large public art installations within urban pocket parks by means of a publicly-accessible “quest” that is infused with one hundred additional interventions, or “moments of delight,” along the way. We will know that this project is successful when 1) residents in neighborhoods along and/or near the route and mobile app users indicate increased engagement with the arts, and 2) more emerging local artists express themselves creatively in new ways and places.
