The Urban Culture Institute Fellowship Program
The Urban Culture Institute Fellowship Program offers internships and field work opportunities that foments the organization’s role as a professional practice engaged in interdisciplinary dialog, research, writing and education. Our intellectually rigorous program provides a framework for connecting Fellows with the Institute's existing, ongoing programs and academic discourse, employing best practice standards for public art and urban culture, placemaking and related fields.
Fellows are invited to join the Urban Culture Institute’s team to work on ongoing projects and initiatives or propose their own, independent research projects. Fellows work with Christina Lanzl, Ph.D., of the Urban Culture Institute and adjunct faculty for history, theory and culture as well as urbanism with a focus on placemaking in the Department of Architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology.
Interested candidates send an email identifying a planned area of research or project proposal, along with a current resume and a portfolio of previous work or a writing sample.
The fellowship program offers networking and mentoring opportunities, professional feedback, logistics and administrative support. Potential research areas at the core of the Urban Culture Institute’s activities, interests and research include:
