Application: PRAXIS + Shared_Studios Fall 2017 Undergraduate Research Fellowship
Visiting art collective, Shared_Studios, is looking for undergraduate studio art, design and art history majors currently enrolled at CSU Dominguez Hills to participate in an exciting research fellowship at their new Portal location on campus! Selected students will have the opportunity to gain professional experience as an intern working with professional curators, artists and researchers. Awarded applicants will receive a $300 honorarium for their participation helping with the project for the last four weeks of the Fall 2017 semester.

Portals use immersive audiovisual technology (housed within big gold shipping containers) to connect people in distant places as if they were in the same room. The LA_Portal primarily facilitates conversations about police violence as part of a research project through Yale University. The Criminal Justice Dialogues make up a growing collection of conversations between persons in highly policed communities. The goal of this project is to amplify the voices of individuals and communities directly affected by police violence—and whose perspectives are too often missing from conversations on this critical issue.

If chosen for this fellowship you will be awarded an internship position to work closely with the Shared_Studios team both onsite at the Portal and, across campus in order to assist with outreach for the project. Students with some afternoon availability and those proficient in both English and Spanish will be prioritized as applicants. We are seeking students with some experience organizing in communities or at on campus clubs at CSUDH, and experience with on-campus special events is a plus. A student with an interest in the connection between social justice, art and technology will be a good fit, as is a fellow with comfort with VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) systems and/or social media.

PRAXIS is California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) extracurricular, cross-disciplinary art engagement program. The primary goals of Praxis are to activate public space, enhance local culture and create expanded dialogue about art, and design in the local South Los Angeles communities. Praxis brings artists, designers, students, and community members together to explore the history, social conditions, neighborhoods, and storylines of South Los Angeles.

1) Enrollment at CSUDH in the Fall 2017 semester.
2) CSUDH student must be a studio art, design or art history major.
3) Candidate interviews will take place beginning on Monday 11/20.
4) Application is on a rolling deadline until all fellowships are filled.

1) Operate the Portal, including assisting Curator in opening and closing the Portal, learning the technology, ushering individuals into and out of the Portal every 20 or 30 minutes, talking to passersby, and explaining the Portals initiative.
2) Assist with Program Dialogues & Events, including assisting in coordinating special events, class visits, leading a discussion group outside the portal, and performances.
3) Outreach in the Community, including on-campus outreach and presentations to classes or clubs with preselected professors and courses in order to facilitate their visit to the Portal.

1) Excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to engage people from diverse backgrounds and opinions in conversation.
2) Attention to detail, particularly around scheduling and logistics. Responsible, results-oriented, and self-motivated.

Due to the short term nature of this engagement, we are looking to select more than one fellow. We are looking for fellows who can commit 6 - 10 hours a week. This is a fellowship which begins on November 27, 2017 and will conclude on December 15, 2017. Honorarium will be issued by Shared_Studios at the end of the project upon completion of fellowship responsibilities.
