Irrigate is piloting an Artist Organizer program and seeks up to four part-time Artist Organizers. Deadline February 28, 2013.

Now in our second year of Irrigate, we are pleased to be deepening artist-led creative placemaking and community engagement along the Green Line by piloting an Artist Organizer program.  We will be hiring up to FOUR (yes, four!) Artist Organizers to work within Host Organizations that impact the Green Line area.  This year, we are thrilled to work with: Frogtown Neighborhood Association, Project for Pride in Living, Trust for Public Land and the Saint Paul Public Schools.  Wow!

Artist Organizers will address Host priorities, engage other local artists, and create a "solo" project of their own design over a year.  AOs receive $30,000 for this part time position, and have access to up to $35,000 for the projects.  

We have two info sessions on Feb 13, 6-7pm and Feb 16, 10-11am at the Central Corridor Resource Center, 1080 University Ave W., Saint Paul. 

Application deadline is February 28, 5pm.
