Just the other day I was discussing with a senior faculty at NC State about resilience. As I got home and sat at my desk I thought I would throw “jobs” “anthropology” and “resilience” into a search engine to see what comes up. The first things that came up was a fellowship opportunity.
Enterprise is seeking an experienced creative practitioner with expertise in placemaking, artistic social practice, community development, cultural anthropology, participatory planning or public interest design to be a Cultural Resilience Fellow. The Fellow will build upon the pioneering creative placemaking, community sustainability and resilience efforts of partner communities and Enterprise over the past several years. The Cultural Resilience Fellow will embody and demonstrate the value of integrating art, culture, and creativity into the resilience projects of Enterprise and our partners. The Cultural Resilience Fellow will be a member of the National Design Initiatives team, which is leading the implementation of the Climate and Cultural Resilience grant program. The Climate and Cultural Resilience grant program supports community-based organizations in their efforts to create sustainable and resilient communities by leveraging creative placemaking strategies to strengthen the connection between cultural and climate resilience. By investing in both the built environment and social systems, community-based organizations and local residents will be more prepared to adapt and respond in the face of challenges.
Five Climate and Cultural Resilience grantees will be selected from community organizations in Enterprise’s local markets as well as those working within rural and Native American communities. For more details on the position and how to apply, click here.
