Creative Interventionist Fellowship


The League of Creative Interventionists (LOCI) is a non-profit organization that creates public art and cultural programs with communities to tell real and just narratives, create empathetic spaces, and develop powerful leaders.

The League Fellowship Program elevates passionate neighborhood residents to connected and powerful leaders. The program provides them with both the resources to reimagine their neighborhood with powerful acts of culture and also valuable access to a national network of peers and mentors.

Fellows and mentors from each city will come together for the annual Creative Interventionist Convening and learning trip at the beginning of their Fellowship in March. Fellows will learn from experienced artists and community organizers how to plan their projects, gain budgeting and management tools, and facilitate meetings. Fellows will participate in workshops to amplify the impact of their projects, and draw inspiration from the projects of other Fellows and mentors.

Each project will measure its impact in neighborhood perception change, creating new social relationships, and generating leadership and job opportunities as measured by LOCI impact metrics. 

This is a one year initiative from March 2018-March 2019. 

Fellows will:

Carry out their project over a 12-month period in a specific neighborhood where they are familiar with the challenges and opportunities that exist
Collaborate with neighborhood residents and existing local organizations in that neighborhood
Propel co-creative action at a neighborhood scale in partnership with community leaders, local organizations and residents
Create projects that present equitable, sustainable and generative opportunities for communities
Fully support their own project including project timelines, budget management, marketing and outreach, etc. with support from a mentor
Bring on a Future Leader to assist them and see the fellowship process who can potentially become a future Fellow

Attend a quarterly call with League fellows from other cities  
Create written and video documentation of their project for blogs, social media, etc.
Attend a yearly convening of all League leaders from each League chapter
