We, Intelligent Mischief, are a Boston-based creative design collective and lab whose mission is to boost invention + imagination, realign action logic and experiment with new forms for civil society in order to create atmospheres of change.
We do this by 1) applying human-centered design, story-based/narrative strategy, and the integration of arts and culture to consulting and training work with movement-focused organizations; 2) shifting culture by creating events, products and building a network of creatives engaged in social justice, and 3) designing multi-media experiments that explore new ways of organizing and movement-building.
We're looking for a social media intern to help increase our social media presence and implement our social media strategy which includes posting witty, relevant content on our social media accounts for 10-15 hours a week starting Tuesday October 13 - Friday December 18.
We need this person to be available at minimum on Monday afternoons between 12-6pm for our weekly in-person check in meetings, and available to attend our events and be part of our work, hence, you must be based in the Boston-area. We are currently located at Make Shift Boston. We do have flexibility around this person’s exact start and end time but it must in between those days and hours. We are looking for a social media savvy individual that has some experience doing social media posts that are social justice oriented, live tweeting, and documenting our events. Our social media posts come from a decolonized progressive analysis. We tend to post creative actions, some radical current events, and updates about our work. We prefer that this person have this internship count as work-study and/or school credit; we currently do not have the means to have a paid internship. We also prefer that you are able. interested or excited to work with a group of Black weirdos, have some creative background, and would join us in our daily twerk breaks.
Through this internship, this person will develop their communications skills, build liberatory analysis and knowledge around creative resistance. They will learn and practice anti-oppression work. They will have first hand experience of a Black led social justice collective and start up. There will be different learning opportunities through event planning, trainings, networking and possibly attending conferences. When money is good, we will occasionally take you out for lunch.
If you are interested, please send us your resume along with a short email cover letter demonstrating your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Creativity in this regard is a plus.
