ICU Art needs people to work on this emerging program in many different areas.
We have two types of people that will be On-Site Managers.
These people are ideally accomplished and respected artists. Preferably this position is for experienced spray-can/graffiti artists that either live in the area, or have solid transportation. We are looking for people with experience working with youth who can work a long day, outside in the Venice Public Art Walls area. Knowledge of Los Angeles graffiti history is a plus. These people will be issuing permits to artists and supervising all activity in the area on weekends along with a Production Manager. The Artist/Mentors will be a part of a team of 6-8 Artists that will work once, twice or three times each month.
These people will be working along with an Artist/Mentor Manager and will be working weekends in the Art Walls area. They will be opening and closing the area, issuing permits to artists to paint, talking to the public about the program, and making sure the area stays clean. Knowledge of Los Angeles graffiti history is a plus. These people will work weekends, dependent on availability and the schedule of the other On-Site Managers.
At some point we will be applying for grants, sponsorship and other sorts of funding. We are interested in talking to people that are interested in working as an independent contractor doing development work.
We need volunteers of all sorts and backgrounds. We are interested in working with people young and old from the community that are positive and are interested in seeing the Venice Art Walls thrive with quality artwork. Volunteers can help keep the area clean, but can also help in other area-related-tasks more suited to their own interests. Possible areas for support include: Event Planning, Public Relations, Development, Historical Research, Photography, Community Outreach, and more. Internships and school credit may be possible.
We are interested in all sorts of people of all ages and backgrounds to help. Send us an e-mail with your interests, skills and any background information, and we will see if we can work together.
