2022 Summer Fieldwork Positions
Traditional Arts Indiana (TAI) seeks to employ graduate and undergraduate students for a recently funded initiative to identify and document the everyday expressive practices of older adults in the greater Indianapolis region. Students will work approximately 20 to 28 hours per week for twelve weeks, between June 6 through August 15, 2022. These student fieldworkers will conduct research and compile information about specific older communities. In addition, TAI will work with community scholars and arts partners to create and implement creative aging programs and resources based on student fieldwork. TAI will train students to document traditional arts and work with older adults. Successful applicants will have been enrolled at Indiana University during Spring 2020 and/or Fall 2022 semesters. Students should be at least 21 years of age and have a valid driver’s license (needed to use an IU vehicle).
