Strange Fire Collective Seeks Two Interns

The Strange Fire artist collective is a group of interdisciplinary artists, curators, and writers focused on work that engages with current social and political forces. We seek to create a venue for work that critically questions the dominant social hierarchy and are dedicated to highlighting work made by women, people of color, and queer and trans artists.

Our collective practice is centered around increasing the visibility of meaningful work and creating dialogue and community through publications, exhibitions, and events.  We are committed to making our projects accessible, affordable, and socially relevant.

We are currently seeking two interns to join our team.  We welcome applicants with a passion for equity, social justice, and diversity and an interest in working with contemporary artists, curators, and writers.  Interns will receive feedback and mentorship from the collective members, partake in the Collective’s activities, be responsible for individual projects, be publicly credited for their work, be listed on our website, and grow their network through our contacts.

The Strange Fire Collective is a passion project formed in 2015 by Jess T. Dugan, Rafael Soldi, Zora J. Murff, and Hamidah Glasgow.  The Collective is run entirely on a volunteer basis, and as such, these positions are unpaid.  This is a great opportunity for students, artists, or writers looking to grow and gain experience in the field.
