Slought welcomes dedicated individuals who share our values and are excited to work in an open and creative environment.

We are committed to increasing diversity and strongly encourage people of color, women, LGBTQ, and candidates with disabilities to apply.

Community Survey

We have developed a short qualitative survey to help guide our organization and programming through these unprecedented times. We invite you to share with us your experiences and needs during the pandemic, and how you feel we can best promote dialogue about the pressing issues facing our communities.

Propose a Project

Do you have an idea for a program with Slought? We welcome new proposals from individuals and organizations who share our values and our commitment to dialogue.

We encourage you to learn about our mission, past activities, and collaborative model before submitting your proposal.

Open Positions

Are you interested in a creative and collaborative experience connecting art, advocacy and nonprofit administration? We offer paid and volunteer positions for undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Pennsylvania and other institutions. Fellowships for those seeking a year-long commitment are also available.

Work-Study (Penn students)



Youth Opportunities

Are you a high school age student interested in art, design and public health? Are you interested in how the arts can address our city's most pressing problems? Join our weekly After School Program and interact with Philadelphia's many arts and social advocacy organizations. The program meets during the school year and is free. We accept applications on a rolling basis.

At the conclusion of the program, there is the opportunity to transition into an internship at Slought during the summer and/or subsequent semesters.
