Public Programming Fellow

New York, United States · Programming



Friends of the High Line’s Fellowship Program is committed to developing the next generation of arts and culture professionals in our own organization and beyond. Through an inclusive and intensive 11-month program, emerging professionals strengthen their capacity to become competitive candidates in the job marketplace. It is our goal to serve as an incubator for the next generation of leaders by leveraging our unique combination of expertise, relationships, and resources.

The High Line Fellowship program is designed to allow you to put your educational experience into practice, while also creating space to begin to chart out and design your desired career path through a combination of professional development opportunities and network building events. Fellows will be a part of a robust learning community comprised of emerging professionals who each contribute uniquely to Friends of the High Line. Together your cohort will attend professional development workshops and networking events, as well as other workforce development opportunities that can support your individual needs and growth. Once you complete the Fellowship program you will join an active alumni network.


As a 2018 Public Programs Fellow, you will be a part of the Programming team, supporting the planning and coordination of adult and family-oriented public programs, while working closely with other departments and gaining an overall understanding of the way cultural institutions of our scale function. You will be reporting to the Associate Director Public Engagement and the Family Programs Manager for day to day assignments. The manager of the The High line Fellowship program will also function as an accountability partner for you in accomplishing the goals you set through this aspect of your role.

The Fellowship is a full-time, paid appointment from February - December. All fellows are expected to make a commitment to the full length of the fellowship program, working from The High Line’s headquarters at least 4 days per week, and attending all fellowship related events. As public programming can take place during nights and weekends, the 2018 Public Program Fellow may be required to work select nights and weekends both indoors and in the park itself.
