Open Call for New Members
Vox Populi is currently seeking applications for new members due March 15th, 2018. Visual and performing artists, writers, and curators that are engaged in experimental methods are encouraged to apply. Vox Populi is looking for individuals that are committed to their personal practices and are interested in working collaboratively to run an alternative art space.

Vox Populi is particularly interested in applicants whose practices are not currently represented in the artist collective.

Benefits of Membership
Vox members have the opportunity to mount a project in the exhibition spaces once each exhibition season (20-24 months) as well as collaborate and coordinate program opportunities both inside and outside of Philadelphia.

The option to curate performances, lectures, education and special events in the Vox performance and project spaces.

Basic Responsibilities of Membership
Vox members are expected to regularly attend monthly membership meetings, committee meetings and annual retreats.

Vox members contribute to the operational needs of the space through gallery sitting, staffing First Friday openings and events in the Performance Space on a rotating basis. They actively participate in specialized committee work (such as Exhibitions or Fundraising) including serving as a committee chairperson at some point during their tenure. While workload varies, Vox members usually spend on average five or more hours per week on Vox-related activities in support of operations.

Example of typical contributions:
2-3 meetings per month, usually a few hours each in the evenings
3 hours per month gallery sitting (Wednesday-Sunday between the hours of 12-6)
2 hour First Friday shift every 3 months
3 hours administrative work weekly, done from home
Daily email correspondence

Vox Populi is a collaboratively run non-profit art space. Vox members work in tandem with the Executive Director and Board of Directors.

There is a one-time initiation fee of $100.00 for new members; monthly dues are $55.00.

A commitment to the membership for at least one year is required.

New members are selected by the current membership.
