About

The mission of the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) is to preserve history and promote scholarship of grassroots urban space activism by researching and archiving efforts to create community spaces. We will also exhibit materials that document these actions, to educate people on the political implications of reclaimed space.

All interns must submit a resume and cover letter. This is an unpaid position and you must be willing to contribute at least 15 hours a week for 3 months. Almost all interns operate from the front desk of the museum so you must have good greeting skills and some organizing ability. The museum (MoRUS) is a partner with Time's Up! Environmental organization so some days we'll be helping out in the beautiful community gardens of the East Village.
