Story Telling Internship

Story Telling Intern

City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. The many projects of City Repair have been accomplished by a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.

The Story Telling Intern sits in our communications and media team while interfacing with all projects. This team is responsible for our newsletter, website, general social media, graphic media, and will have a high focus on creating article and blog content. With a dynamic mission and community, 20 year history, and bustling year round projects, this internship will help document the past, present, and our dreams for the future. The title of “Story Teller” is important because as a community building and nature based organization, humanizing our roles and being playful with metaphor is fundamental to our ethics and operations.
