CERF+ is looking for individuals to join a new advisory council to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within CERF+’s programming, as well as advise the CERF+ staff and board on increasing reach and engagement with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color)/ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, Native-American), Disability, and LGBTQIA+ communities.
CERF+ welcomes applications from all craft artists, educators, leaders, activists, facilitators, grantmakers, organizers, and individuals with emergency management experience and will prioritize those identifying as members of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color)/ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, Native-American), Disability, and LGBTQIA+ communities. Members of the council will be eligible for a $700 stipend per year for the two year term of service and may be reappointed for up to another year. Meetings will be held virtually and will occur at least quarterly or at a frequency deemed appropriate by council members.
To be considered for participation in the CERF+ Access & Equity Advisory Council, please submit a personal statement of interest in any form (such as a short 1-2 minute video, brief 300-500 word statement, or other expression of your choice). Your statement should include: why you are interested in joining the council, your vision for how an advisory council can best advance CERF+’s mission to serve artists who work in craft disciplines by providing a safety net to support strong and sustainable careers, and your experience and commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. You are welcome, but not required, to include a resume, short CV, or summary of relevant experience, skills, and achievements.
CERF+ will evaluate applications and recommend candidates for the council to be approved by the CERF+ staff and board. Selected council members will be announced in late September 2022.
CERF+ serves artists who work in craft disciplines by providing a safety net to support strong and sustainable careers. CERF+’s core services are education programs, advocacy, network building and emergency relief.
