  • Capture thorough notes and photos.

  • Report back with findings.

  • Present results in a public celebration.


  • Conversational in Spanish

How to Apply

Please send a cover letter, resume, and two personal or professional references to hello@southparkarts by 3/15/2019. Because this position is funded by a Neighborhood Matching Fund, the ideal candidate will be hired as soon as possible.
