Art Works For Change

Art Works for Change is a nonprofit organization that creates contemporary art exhibitions and storytelling projects to address critical social and environmental issues.

We recently launched a new storytelling project that will help people visualize the impact of global warming and the pathways to solving the climate crisis. As part of this project, we have created an internship program focused on environmental leadership. Our interns will learn about climate policies, advocacy techniques, and the role of storytelling in promoting engagement. In addition to learning about climate activism, interns will help develop creative storytelling experiences to spur action on climate change. These experiences may include climate-themed games, interactive stories, music compositions, poetry, and similar forms of creative expression, which we will roll out in partnership with grassroots environmental organizations.

Your role would be to participate in this virtual internship and to develop creative approaches to activating your local community. This internship program is a great fit for high school and college students, as well as recent graduates. Other aspiring activists are also welcome to apply. Plus, you will get to join a fun, passionate team, working for an important cause--and build your own skills and network in the process. Remote volunteers are happily accepted.

We get a lot done for a small organization! Learn more about us in this New York Times feature: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/13/arts/design/museums-inspire-social-activism-politics.html?_r=0

Please note that currently we are only accepting applications from prospective interns located in the United States.
