league of creative interventionists fellows

The League of Creative Interventionists, an organization dedicated to using public art to reimagine the social and physical landscape of our cities, is currently accepting applications for two new fellows to join our two current fellows, Dave and Miguel, to lead our Philadelphia chapter. Supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the League of Creative Interventionists Fellowship Program is currently accepting applications from residents based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who are eager to create vibrant public spaces and engage communities to prompt curiosity, creativity, and connection. 

Fellows will lead their League chapter, and facilitate creative interventions in their city.  The Philadelphia chapter is part of a network of League chapters in cities around the US and the world. In a unique and exciting partnership, fellows will collaborate closely with teams from Reimagining the Civic Commons, a national initiative that seeks to counter economic and social fragmentation in our cities by revitalizing and connecting public spaces such as parks, plazas, trails and libraries to bring together people from different backgrounds.
