  • Teaching Artist – Mural Arts Program

    The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program’s Restored Spaces Initiative seeks a Teaching Artist.

    The Restored Spaces Initiative is Mural Arts’ art-based approach to integrating the activities of city agencies, community organizations, and residents to collectively transform schools, recreation centers, and commercial corridors into models for sustainable revitalization.

    In certain areas of Philadelphia, littering and public dumping of trash are recognized as major problems. Where does all of this trash come from? As citizens, what are our rights and responsibilities for managing trash?

    The Teaching Artist will create project-based curricula to guide high school students in exploring city systems and finding answers to these questions. Students will think beyond their classroom to engage in active research, conduct site visits, and interview decision-makers and stakeholders to demystify the various systems through which trash is managed – or not – within the City of Philadelphia. Mural Arts will support this endeavor through our broad network of contacts as well as advise on project development along with Scott Quitel of the LandHealth Institute. Artist-in Residence will then collaborate with students and professionals to produce an innovative and engaging graphic tool to be taken up by neighborhood organizations and advocacy groups for education about litter in South Philadelphia and beyond.
    This is part of a series of projects in South Philadelphia, where Restored Spaces is partnering with a coalition of community members to test art-based interventions which address vital local concerns and reveal, produce, share, and celebrate local knowledge.

    Dates: Application deadline: April 1 (We will be reviewing and interviewing applicants on a rolling basis starting immediately).

    Classes will run throughout the month of May.

    Hours: 3-5 classes per week, 8:00 – 9:30 am.

    RESPONSIBILITIES:
    • Create work plan or curriculum which outlines goals of weekly classes and workshops.
    • Develop project proposal and participate in the Mural Arts Program’s design review process, incorporating feedback as needed.
    • Make connections with local scientists, policymakers, politicians, and other figures through whom students can work to understand the Philadelphia trash system.
    • Encourage curiosity, inquisitiveness, and discovery in students.
    • Produce final graphic tool (a poster, pamphlet, etc), built on students’ explorations and discoveries, which can be used to demystify the trash system in Philadelphia.
