Art for Social Change Programmer
Use your knowledge and passion for interactive, engaging ways of learning as you interact with and work alongside artists, artist-educators, and local community advocates to develop the artist-education component of Face Forward. You will get hands-on experience in creating meaningful and fun development opportunities for multidisciplinary, socially-conscious artists, as well as assessing the value and impact of those experiences, through surveys and focus groups, so as to better the program. You may also work with our Artist Representative in facilitating bi-monthly artist dialogues and social networking opportunities.
“I can’t sing. Nor can I dance, paint, write, or play an instrument. I can, however, inspire and be inspired; motivate and be motivated; influence and be influenced. And I can confess I have felt all of these through my work with Face Forward. I’ve had handfuls of great networking opportunities though this organization and I’ve especially enjoyed being a representative of Face Forward. I found that spontaneously giving out business cards to street artists or sending emails to potential clients have really helped build the Face Forward community… and I’m proud to say I have contributed.“
