Community Artist Engagement Team
Is seeking artists who are both engaged in their communities and are interested in making a difference through collaboration
4RM+ULA, as part of the Riverview Corridor team, seeks to hire up to three artists with experience using artistic and creative means to build relationships and engage communities. The selected artists will work as part of a team alongside lead project artists, planners, engineers, architects, and designers. Together, the team will engage the community in consensus building around the locally preferred alternate for a modern streetcar. The artists will also help build relationships with the neighborhood residents, local businesses and organizations along the 12-mile stretch of the Riverview Corridor.
The ideal candidate is someone with a demonstrated background with community-engaged art. It’s an artist who lives and/or works along the Riverview Corridor, and has experience working within diverse communities. We strongly encourage applications from people who identify as members of marginalized and underrepresented communities. This opportunity is a part-time independent contractor position, funded through 2023. Much of the work will be concentrated on evenings, weekends and during warmer months. The average stipend for each artist is $4,000 per year. To apply please submit your interest HERE or Click the APPLY NOW button

The Riverview Modern Streetcar project is a 12-mile planned transportation connection between neighborhoods and anchor destinations and employers in downtown Saint Paul, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and the Mall of America. The planned modern streetcar line is planned to run generally along State Highway 5 (West 7th Street) and will provide a higher capacity with frequent service in an area with growing population and employment, and a transit reliant population that needs accessible and dependable service. Modern streetcar can also be an incentive for reinvestment and economic development.
