Inspired by Ciclovía, the original, weekly street closure event in Bogotá, Colombia, CicLAvia consists of the temporary opening of Los Angeles streets to pedestrians and bicyclists so that they may enjoy a safe and pleasant recreation space, without the fear of car traffic. CicLAvia is a recurring free program that features interconnected routes throughout the Southern California region, creating a web of temporary public space where Angelenos are encouraged to make active use of their streets.
The Community Arts Resources, producers of the CicLAvia events, is looking for a graduate intern to assist in the day-to-day management of the program. Graduate students in the fields of urban planning, public policy, public administration, and public art are encouraged to apply. Intern responsibilities include:
- Research on fundraising opportunities, other CicLAvia-type programs, marketing and outreach strategies
- Drafting of communication materials
- Assistance with event planning and pre-production logistics
- Database updates and organization
- General participation in CicLAvia brainstorming and Board/committee meetings
Community Arts Resources is looking for someone who can commit a minimum of 8-10 hours a week for the Spring 2012 semester. The chosen intern will report to the Community Arts Resources President and Community Development & Planning Associate. This is an unpaid internship: course credit only.
