Temporary, Part-time Youth Project Coordinator
Cambridge Arts Council
Project Dates: July 1- August 9
Applicant Deadline: Noon, Monday, June 17, 2013

Program Description:
The Cambridge Arts Council (CAC) continues its highly successful Public Art Youth Council (PAYC) program, a collective of teenagers representing Cambridge’s diverse neighborhoods as ambassadors for public art. PAYC members are recruited and hired to work under the guidance of Public Art Program staff to create activities and events that invite fellow youth to deepen their understanding of and engagement with public art. Over a 6-week time period, PAYC participants will research and develop installations based on the City’s current Play Initiative. Let the Public Play is a project administered by the Cambridge Arts Council that engages the arts to further the goals set forth in the City’s Healthy Parks and Playgrounds Task Force Report. The purpose of the project is to offer the public an experiential demonstration of key concepts put forth in the new Play initiative:

Open-ended play is essential to human development throughout life.

The built environment of our City should reflect our commitment to the value of play for all generations and abilities.

Play need not be restricted to fenced-in playgrounds and parks for children only. Play can enliven our walk to work or school, a stop at a plaza, or our view of the street as we work and live in the City every day through all seasons.

Play can be enjoyed in a moment or for hours. It can be purely visual, small in scale, or engage our whole bodies.

Job Description:

Project Coordinator will work directly with the students of the PAYC under the supervision of the CAC’s Public Art Administrator. Coordinator must be available for all hours: July 1- August 9, Monday through Friday, 9am to 1pm (with some work required outside those hours). The position pays approximately $25/hr working for approximately 120 hours total.

Preferred Qualifications:

Previous experience working with teenagers from diverse backgrounds
Previous experience with art education
Knowledge of public art and/or studio art (history and practices)
Knowledge of the City of Cambridge
Ability to manage and work within project budgets and timelines

Please e-mail resume and cover letter by Noon, Monday, June 17, 2013 to
