2023–2025 FAO Schwarz Fellowship at the Barnes Foundation

Posted by The Barnes Foundation on November 15, 2022

About the Fellowship

The FAO Schwarz Fellow will engage with underserved and under-resourced communities through programming for their direct service work and, in collaboration with Barnes staff, will take a leadership role in developing future museum programming tailored to upcoming special exhibitions for their special project work. This is a two-year paid full-time job fellowship.

Direct Service

The FAO Schwarz Fellow will focus on engaging young people, children, and their families through the Barnes’s Community Engagement and Family Programs department, with a focus on the Barnes Teens project and pilot Community Connectors Corps for high school/college students, contributing to the success of all museum programming.

The Fellow will:

  • Initiate a new program to engage high school and college students in connecting Barnes resources and arts experiences with community partners. As part of launching this new program, the Fellow will help recruit and engage 30 Philadelphia middle/high school teens each school year and provide them with quality arts learning and experiences that generate critical thinking skills and social/emotional growth and coordinate and instruct afterschool teen arts classes.
  • Assist Barnes Early Learner Summer Pods, a summer program in public parks and neighborhood daycare centers for toddlers ages 5 and under; and Summer Imaginariums, art workshops with Philadelphia Parks and Rec summer camps for children.
