FUJIFILM Foundations of Creation Fellowship Program:
Hired through a generous sponsorship from FUJIFILM, these paid fellows will be working jointly as a task-force, and collaborate to contribute to the continued success, growing visibility, and propagation of CEPA’s education and exhibition programs. Currently, we have funding for 3 positions:
- Marketing Fellow: This fellow’s efforts will focus on growing public awareness, disseminating information, and sharing success stories. Knowledge of Photoshop and graphic design, as well as digital media marketing and press relations is helpful. Tasks will include developing press packages, creating blog entries/newsletters for our members and donors, planning social media posts, creating exhibition postcards, and collecting a history of press coverage for the program.
- Outreach and Development Fellow: This fellow will help plan outreach to residents, partner organizations, and businesses for the program. The fellow will also assist in grant writing and growing CEPA’s network of funders and supporters. Tasks include grant writing, representing CEPA on the ground at community events, and communicating with community partners and businesses.
- Education Fellow: This fellow will assist the Education department in its multifaceted programming, including afterschool programs, Saturday community programming, CEPA workshops, and CEPA’s well-known programs Photography Works and the Mobile Darkroom. Tasks include assistant teaching, overseeing CEPA’s Darkroom, Photo Lab, and Photo Studio, and collecting images and stories about the activities to showcase our successes.
For CEPA, championing diversity in artistic communities is part of our roots. It involves taking action by making educational opportunities available in all communities, and empowering and promoting diverse artists in our galleries. Our commitment to inclusion spans across race, gender, age, religion, identity, cognitive ability, and experience. We hold ourselves accountable to make hiring decisions based on merit, and look for staff who have passion for the work and a willingness to grow with us. We act to strengthen our community by helping to make individuals successful and creating a place for all artists who wish to have a voice to not just be heard but to thrive.
*To support this goal, CEPA encourages former and current CEPA students, Photography Works Program Alumni and ASI’s Art Access Pass recipients to apply first. We will also have an educational presentation available on building resumes, job application materials, and interviewing skills to help you put your best foot forward in your application. If you need internet or computer access to apply for this position, you can request access to CEPA’s computer lab for free.
Hours: 10 hours per week Tuesday through Saturday for 16 weeks renewable for a second 16 week semester based on interest and availability.
We will be accepting applications for 2023-2024 in Summer of 2023. Please check back!
