ARTogether facilitate social gathering, family picnics, and other social activities to raise awareness about refugee situation and also to make connection between the refugee community and the general public. ARTogether forms partnerships with artists and refugee organizations in the Bay Area , to develop and host regular free creative arts workshops that are 90 minutes to two hours in duration. ARTogether designs one-time workshops as well as ongoing regular series. Workshop themes cover a broad range of media and purpose.

    • Update our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) on regular bases
    • Attract and interact with targeted virtual communities and networks users.
    • Write original story for our social media pages
    • Prepare newsletter once a quarter.

    This internship is an excellent introduction to the world of non-profit advocacy groups.

    Our ideal candidate is/has:

    • Excellent oral and written communication skills
    • solid understanding of how each social media channel works and how to optimize content so that it is engaging on those channels.
    • Able to work on her own, with minimum supervision
    • Passionate about organizing, community building, refugee issues and art

    The position is currently unpaid, although a small stipend may become available, contingent on future funding.

We request a minimum commitment of 10 to 12 hours per week. Scheduling is always flexible.

    ARTogether is located in Oakland, but this internship position can be done entirely online after the initial interview and training. We do prefer, when possible, attendance at regular weekly meetings. Position can begin immediately.
