You've come across our application form for becoming a core organizer for Bricobio.
We're looking to fill around 6 positions in roles related to community building, financial coordination, project creation, design, marketing and other roles that can support Bricobio projects in art, design and research. These are volunteer roles (for now), but they will be fundamental to the founding of Bricobio as a structured organization with a mission and vision that responds to community interests.
We'll be creating a leadership structure based on methods from the Community Biosummit Fellows Program, supported by the MIT Media Lab's Community Biotechnology Initiative. (https://www.biosummit.org/fellows) This is a community creation process where we'll work towards building teams and responding to our local community's interests and needs for resources related to bio-tech and bio-art projects.
