If you have a passion to help communities prosper, are looking to make a positive social and civic change, and can commit 5 hours a week, the League of Creative Interventionists (LoCI) wants to hear from you.
LoCI is accepting applications for its Fellowship program through August 28, 2020. Supported in part through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Fellows selected will aid the Project Place Initiative, located in the Lakewood Community, with community-based and individual neighborhood projects.
Selected Fellows will collaborate with neighborhood residents and organizations to develop a project that will have a positive impact on the community and will allow further opportunities for the residents who live there. Fellows will also ensure that they are keeping good video or written documentation so that their progress can be shared online.
For more information and to submit an application, please go to the League of Creative Interventionists Website. The deadline to submit is August 28. Those granted fellowships will be notified by September 15, 2020.
About the League of Creative Interventionists
In 2014, Hunter Franks was creating art and connecting with creatives in San Francisco who wanted to build up their neighborhoods by developing joyous and connected spaces. He developed the League of Creative Interventionists and local chapters around the country developed quickly to meet the needs of these underserved communities.
From the LoCI Web Site: “LOCI Fellows include artists, neighborhood leaders, concerned mothers, social workers, teachers, and architects—all people with a passion for their community and ideas to help transform them. They range in age and identity, but are unified in creating opportunities for community residents to come together, often in public spaces, to participate in and benefit from Fellow projects.”
