Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space Summer/Fall 2020 Intern

Save to Favorites

Time's Up

  • 10 people are interested
Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space
The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space is located in the area with the most community gardens- The Lower East Side.

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 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, which includes at least one day on the weekend, 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. Fall interns also help with the museum's annual film festival, which takes place every September. 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.
