Summer Art & Advocacy Youth Fellowship

Clockshop’s Summer Art & Advocacy Youth Fellowship is a 5-week-long, cohort-based summer program for a small group of high school students in Northeast Los Angeles. The program combines natural exploration and art-making with public space advocacy training. Fellows will receive a $2250 stipend for their full participation.

Over the course of the summer, fellows will:

  • Learn about the ecology of the Los Angeles River and our local public lands and parks
  • Explore political strategies for advocating for public space in Los Angeles
  • Collaborate with professional artists
  • Grow leadership skills as they build towards a culminating youth-imagined community project/event that transforms the knowledge and skills they’ve built into action

Fellowship dates: Tuesday through Friday from 9:30am to 3:00pm, July 9th through August 9th.

Applications are closed.
Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a virtual interview in late April / early May.


Summer Art & Advocacy Youth Fellowship, and related programs, are supported through generous funding from ARLAThe Getty Foundation, The Michael and Alice Kuhn Foundation, The SNAP Foundation, and Clockshop’s generous community of individual donors.
