The Creative Access Fellowship is a competitive, paid program that trains student leaders (one graduate and one undergraduate student) in community partnership development and the curation and execution of interactive performances. The CA Fellows serve as liaisons between the Office of Community Engagement and the student body, actively working to support meaningful opportunities for students to experience community performance.

Creative Access Fellows work part-time (approximately 5-7 hours a week) and receive ongoing training in partnership development and community engagement. The rate of compensation is $15/hour.

The work of the CA Fellows can be organized into the following categories:

  • Partnership Development: Working with the Manager of Community Partnerships and Peabody Community Partner Organizations, the CA Fellow will plan, schedule and execute student performances at partner sites.
  • Student Recruiting and Training: The CA Fellow will actively recruit and advise students in program development and engaging performance techniques.
  • Program Curation and Performance: The CA Fellow will match students with particular sites and curate programs appropriately tailored to the audience and medium of performance.
  • Professional Development: CA Fellows will attend monthly Artist Rounds meetings and learn from guest artists, industry professionals and specialists.
