Opportunities to Volunteer

As a volunteer organization that builds relationships across communities, we welcome dedicated individuals who share our values. We are committed to fostering a dialogic and collaborative work environment.

Volunteers should be open to an intensive and non-conventional experience, and be willing to work on a variety of projects and assist with public programs and maintenance of the space. We look forward to working with you!

Fellowships and Internships

Interested in an intensive and collaborative experience connecting art, advocacy and nonprofit administration?

Slought offers unpaid internships for undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania and other institutions.

We also offer unpaid fellowships for cultural producers (artists, scholars, curators and activists) seeking a year-long commitment.

Opportunities to Collaborate

Slought is committed to openness and responsiveness. Over the past ten years, we have developed a variety of programs across diverse fields of knowledge, each involving different structures of creativity and collaboration. We welcome new proposals from individuals and organizations who share our values and our commitment to dialogue.

Opportunities for Young Adults

Who is represented in society? How does representation relate to questions of social justice and fairness? Can we change modes of representation? Questions such as these inform our work at Mixplace Studio, where we explore the relationships between people, issues and places in West Philadelphia.

Working in teams, we interact with a diverse floating faculty of curators, activists, artists, architects and researchers. Are you interested in joining the studio? Complete the application form below.
