Topical Cream is a New York-based non-profit, supporting the work of women and gender-nonconforming individuals in contemporary art through public programming and digital publishing. We are seeking an art writer to mentor system-impacted youth via our new Art Writing Mentorship program, developed in collaboration with Recess/Assembly.
Literature, film, and art criticism have mapped and narrated the vital, natural evolution many make from being system-impacted to being a published author. The Art Writing Mentor will work with at least one writer who has been system- or court-impacted to help them harness the power and importance of their experiences, training them in the craft of art-writing, while also providing them with concrete skills that can translate to a variety of fields.
This is a three-month position, expected to last approximately from September through November. This position requires a time commitment of 20 hours, or three days, per week. The pay rate is $20/hour. Though the work will be largely remote, candidates should be based in New York City.
