The Community Engagement Internship enables the participant(s) to help craft methods for generating public input on policy questions posed by the City Council; to design and help facilitate activities designed to develop community consensus; and to create and help execute mediation exercises meant to resolve disputes between constituencies.
The interns will work directly with the Community Engagement Consultant, Marion Sanchez, managing tasks associated with community engagement activities, including, but not limited to, the following:
The interns will each report for work approximately 15-20 hours per week. The intern will generally report for work during weekday normal business hours (8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.) but may, on occasion, be called upon to assist with community engagement meetings in the early morning, later evening, or weekends. The hours should be fairly standard and constant, but, in cases where the Consultant is called upon to mediate an unplanned crisis situation, the intern may be asked to assist during hours other than those already scheduled.
Applicants from a variety of educational backgrounds will be considered. Applicants majoring in communications, government/political science, and psychology are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should possess strong writing, speaking, typing, interpersonal, leadership, and organizational skills. Applicants should be able to work under tight deadlines with limited advance notice of their assignments. They should have demonstrated experience in working with large teams and managing complex projects.
Send cover letter and resume to Marion Sanchez (email@example.com). Include availability information (e.g., number of hours per week, preferred days, etc.).
POSITION: Art of the Spanish Americas Intern
DEPARTMENT: Latin American Art
REPORTS TO: Rosario I. Granados, Ph. D., Carl & Marilynn Thoma Associate Curator of Spanish Colonial Art
HOURS: 160 hrs. per semester
This position will be developed in the context of the long-term loan of the Thoma Collection of South American Colonial art to the Blanton. It is an exciting and challenging opportunity to learn about the wide range of curatorial needs of an art museum for this specific period. Intern will provide assistance with current projects such as the third rotation of the Art of the Spanish Americas Galleries and two temporary exhibitions that deal with the so-called colonial period: Mapping Memory and Painted Cloth. The Intern also will help coordinate the visits of two scholars that will be on campus to deliver public talks, and of the Thoma Scholars, an international small group of scholars conducting research at UT. The Intern will also be involved in tracing provenance of some of the pieces on loan and those recently donated by the Cisneros Foundation of Venezuelan Colonial art. This internship is a chance to gain valuable research and organizational experience and add real world projects to the intern’s portfolio.
