WHAT IS THE NEED?
As a part of your time with Love Thy Neighborhood, spend 20-30 hours per week doing an internship with Sojourn Arts and serving the community through the creation of visual art.
Sojourn Arts is a ministry of Sojourn Church Midtown. One of Sojourn Midtown’s core values is Creativity and the Arts. Sojourn Arts helps artists to be fruitful in their work and encourages all people to cultivate beauty. The first thing we learn about God in the Bible is that He created the universe and everything in it. God made all humans in His image, creative like God. As a ministry, Sojourn Arts wants to equip people to utilize their creativity to honor God and benefit others.
This opportunity to serve with Sojourn Arts is designed for a person who is actively pursuing a future career in the arts and who wants to learn what it looks like to serve the community through the creation of art. Visual Arts Interns will assist the Sojourn Arts Director and the Sojourn Arts Assistant with visual arts and events in the church. This includes curating installations in the gallery and sanctuary at Sojourn Midtown, gallery receptions, book discussions, classes and workshops, murals, interactive community art projects, seasonal Sanctuary art and decorations, and more. Interns will also have significant time to work on personal art projects, with a focus on seeing and serving our neighbors in the community.
Interns will support the mission of Sojourn Arts by learning how to engage artists and the church while developing their own skills as an artist.
