Programming Fellow - LATITUDE Chicago
The Programming Fellow works closely with the monthly Artists-in-Residence before, during and after their residency and acts as their primary point of contact. They review and organize applications for next year’s programming with the Executive Director and a Review Committee. The Programming Fellow will use their creativity to assist in the conception, planning, and crafting of language for Resident events, and any additional programming opportunities. The Programming fellow should possess good organizational skills, written and verbal communication skills, and an interest in working closely with LATITUDE Residents.
The deadline to apply is October 18th, 2019 with a start date of November 1, 2019. Email a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In late 2015 LATITUDE developed the Fellowship program to provide essential training for artists interested in arts administration. Three Lab Assistants interested in furthering their involvement in the organization worked closely with the Executive Director to distribute the administrative duties and advance the collective learning structure that is essential to the organization's mission. This program has carried forward successfully into 2017 as an open application process and has proven to be a springboard for fellows into their future pursuits.
The Fellowship Program consists of three complementary positions focused on education, programming, and community outreach. Fellows influence the organization's development and direction, receive mentorship from staff and board members, and work closely with the Executive Director. Fellows are encouraged to bring their personal interests to the position and take initiative to tailor their experience at LATITUDE. Fellows are required to maintain one full on-site shift a week, attend weekly staff meetings, and assist in events on and off site, approximating 15 hrs a week. In exchange Fellows receive a $200/month honorarium, free membership and ink charges in the LATITUDE lab, and opportunities for continued technical and administrative education.
