Part-time: Community Engagement Fellow
Reporting to the Manager of Marketing and Community Engagement, the Community Engagement Fellow will primarily provide support for the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s 2024 exhibition Prospetto a Mare, featuring new work by Eritrean artist Dawit L. Petros. As this exhibition posits links between colonialization, migrations, and modernism in Eritrea, Italy, and North America, the Community Engagement Fellow will be tasked with visioning and bringing into fruition a parallel community-centered program that works with members of these communities in Chicago. Foregrounded in the MoCP’s mission to cultivate a deeper understanding of the artistic, cultural and political roles of photography in our world today, the Community Engagement Fellow will be a convener of art, ideas, and activism across Chicago’s diverse communities. In addition to driving the specific community engagement efforts related to Prospetto a Mare, the Community Engagement Fellow will also realize other projects with partner organizations throughout their term at the MoCP.
