Flux Factory is looking for sharp volunteers and interns who relish the thought of plugging into a creative community. We produce dozens of exhibitions per year, run an international residency program, and present free events that serve cultural producers and the general public of NYC.
While volunteers and interns can participate in all aspects of our non-profit organization, these specific areas are in need of support:
With so many things to brag about, Flux needs a media savvy crew to help get the word out. We’re looking for tech gurus, social media savants, graphic design experts, and masters of the web to teach us new ways to shout it from the rooftops. Volunteers will be asked to document and market Flux projects, and help develop the Flux voice via social media, email announcements, and our website.
Can you offer amazing insight into fundraising by throwing awesome parties and/or writing sincere grant applications? Responsibilities for development volunteers focus on researching potential donors and sponsors; working on the occasional party; assisting with grant writing; and dreaming up previously untested and totally original ways to raise money.
Do you feel most satisfied when juggling multiple projects with a million different moving parts at once? We could use help with planning our public programs, including research; exhibition installation; assisting artists with making new work; and helping to organize events. We are also looking for volunteers who are interested in working with our residency staff to develop programs that attract new applicants, help our current residents, and keep our alumni connected to Flux.
Volunteers have access to many of the benefits that our residents and staff enjoy: use of our woodshop, silk screen studio, library, rooftop garden, and other communal spaces and equipment; entrée to an extensive international network of cultural producers; the ability to influence Flux Factory programming and the future of the organization; and you’ll always be publicly credited for creative contributions.
