Information sessions to be held May 10 and May 19 for inaugural fellowship class
INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. today announced it is accepting applications for its first cohort of Public Space Fellows now through Sunday, May 23. Through this inaugural fellowship, the Cultural Trail is hoping to create opportunities for Black, Latinx and other underrepresented communities that are frequently left out of civic dialogue and city-building. A virtual information session to learn more about the six-month fellowship and the application process will be held on Monday, May 10, 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. and Wednesday, May 19, 5:00 p.m.-6:00p.m.
“The overarching goal of the fellowship is to more deeply understand what Indianapolis residents want to experience in their public spaces while also providing hands-on and project-based experience for the fellows,” said Indianapolis Cultural Trail executive director Kären Haley. “We see the fellowship as a learning opportunity for both the fellows and our organization.”
Modeled after the Public Space Fellowship program at The Bentway in Toronto, Canada, the Cultural Trail’s Fellowship is designed to build capacity in the next generation of diverse leaders that will steward the future of public spaces in downtown Indianapolis while ensuring inclusion and equitable access for Indianapolis residents. Fellows will receive hands-on experience with all aspects of managing places that are accessible to the public, from programming and community engagement to day-to-day operations and evaluation.
