Teaching Muralist for Day Wage Program

Teaching Muralist for Day Wage Program

This Deadline Expired: Friday, February 15, 2019

Mural Arts Philadelphia seeks a teaching muralist for our new Day Wage Program. In April 2018 Mural Arts and Mental Health Partnerships (MHP) will begin a new day pay program as an alternative approach to engaging individuals who have a need for additional resources and support. The program will offer an opportunity to participate in meaningful, compensated work while also being connected to a range of services designed to respond to the specific needs of the community we are engaging. Up to ten individuals will be recruited from the Rittenhouse neighborhood each day to participate in the program. Those that sign on will be transported to a painting studio located in the Suburban Station concourse where they will collaborate with the teaching muralist to design and create artwork for the Station. After three hours of work, they will be transported to New Life Center for lunch, access to amenities, and opportunities to engage with a range of services (at their discretion). A stipend of $50 will be provided to participants and they will be transported back to a location of their choosing.

The program will operate four days per week. We anticipate a 28-week implementation period (April-October). Individuals will be allowed to participate for just one day, but will be encouraged to attend multiple sessions. Mural Arts and MHP will monitor openings in the program on a daily basis, and develop a streamlined system for recruiting new participants as spots become available. We will endeavor, through evaluation, to asses an ideal level of engagement and build incentives to foster participation at that level.

This position is part time and temporary and the compensation is $30.00 per an hour, 20-25 hours per week for 28 weeks April through October. Interested applicants must submit resume, cover letter, and portfolio to Laure Biron, Porch Light Program Director at Laure.Biron@muralarts.org. Applications will be accepted until February 15th.
