Status

Open

Qualifications

A good candidate will be detail-oriented and a self starter, eager to learn the inner workings of a nimble, intimate team in an ever evolving organization. Candidates with an interest in new models for cultural production, non-hierarchical decision making and curation, and developing experimental, multidisciplinary and subversive projects in a caring, member-focused community are especially encouraged to apply. The Community Program Intern will have opportunities to directly interact with NAVEL members, residents, participants, and organizers, and should feel comfortable communicating with folks from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. 

Background

NAVEL creates opportunities for artists, thinkers and makers to ignite our collective imaginaries, expanding our capacity to cooperate and co-create in holistic, sustainable, and emergent ways. From our collaboratively-run warehouse space in downtown Los Angeles, we support a community of artists and agitators to get the resources they need to do the work they want. Through membership, programs and events, we bring people together to engage and experiment with caring and collaborative ways of thinking, being, organizing, and making. Since 2017, we have provided 150 free or low-cost cultural programs and events to more than 15,000 community members, featuring close to 300 artists, thinkers, and makers.
