WonderRoot is seeking interns! Interns help with the day-to-day functioning of the organization and regularly engage with Atlanta arts and non-profit professionals. All WonderRoot interns will gain experience with arts administration, event planning and facilitation, community engagement practices, and program design. A commitment of 15-20 hours a week of combined on-site office hours and off-site event assistance is expected.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at WonderRoot!  There are lots of different ways to volunteer with us: at the Arts Center, at special events, at our monthly Artist & Maker Market at PCM, and more!

Sunday August 5th | 12-6pm | Ponce City Market

WonderRoot's Artist and Maker Market at PCM is a monthly outdoor market located at The Shed at Ponce City Market, a covered platform off of the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail.

The WonderRoot Artist and Maker Market connects Atlanta residents to artists, makers, and other creative people, such as yourself! WonderRoot facilitates a platform for creative people to sustain themselves and build relationships. This is an extensive opportunity to both expand your reach and grow your work.

We invite you to take advantage of the culture and community incubated on the BeltLine Eastside Trail by registering for the low-cost artist market. This is an open-invitation; feel free to share! Please be aware we do not accept food vendors.

Vendors will arrive at 11am. Market is open from 12pm-6pm. Vendors must leave by 7pm.

Vendors are accepted on a rolling basis. We will notify you within 2 weeks if your application has been approved.

WonderRoot provides one 6-foot table for each vendor. Vendors can apply for a full table or a half-table. In the case of a half-table, two vendors share one 6-foot table. Both vendors still need to fill out their own application and submit their own payment to share a table. You may request to be paired with a certain vendor or one will be assigned to share your table.

A $95(full table) or $50(half table) vendor fee must be submitted before the day of the market. Once you are accepted, you will receive a payment link. All vendor fees collected directly support WonderRoot's youth programs.

We will also feature two artists at one scholarship table(two half-tables) per monthly market at no cost to provide better access for underrepresented artists. To be considered for this opportunity, you must first submit an application to the market and then send an email to market@wonderroot.org saying you are requesting a scholarship spot. Scholarships will be awarded on July 20th.

Submission of this application assumes full understanding and compliance to the responsibilities and requirements of the WonderRoot Artist and Maker Market at PCM outlined here.

On behalf of WonderRoot and the Off the Wall: Atlanta’s Civil Rights & Social Justice Journey, we thank you for your interest in applying to be an Off the Wall artist! Off the Wall initiative, a program of the Atlanta Host Committee for Super Bowl LIII. This application is open until July 22nd at 11:30pm. 9 artists have been selected by a Nomination and Selection Committee. We are opening applications to the public to select a tenth artist. 

Off the Wall: Atlanta’s Civil Rights & Social Justice Journey is a city-wide initiative taking place over the next 10 months that elevates – though murals, media, and community conversations – the complex journey Atlanta and the United States has on issues related to civil rights and social justice.

Over the next several months, WonderRoot will work to facilitate dozens of community conversations with civil rights and social justice partners, collaborate with civic leaders and media partners to amplify the power of art to catalyze social movements, and support artists from around the country to produce murals in the lead up to Super Bowl LIII. 

As Super Bowl LIII arrives in February 2019, the city has the opportunity to elevate both our proud civil rights legacy and our vision for an equitable Atlanta.  We will uplift the stories of Atlanta’s diverse and monumental relationship to civil rights and social justice through these murals, community conversations, and public activation events. We invite you to apply to be one of these artists. Selected artists will work with civil rights and social justice partners, through WonderRoot, to develop artworks that represent the complex and long journey for justice and freedom for all.

Specifically, each mural will be designed and developed by selected artists, community partners, and key stakeholders within the communities they reside. The content of the murals will reflect these integral community conversations hosted throughout Atlanta. Artists do not need to reside in Atlanta to participate.

 We anticipate that this application will take you 10-15 minutes. While the collective work will consist of approximately 30 murals, artists will be hired to design and execute 1-4 murals each and will be compensated for their work. 

Nine artists have already been selected by our Off the Wall Artist Nomination and Selection Committee. The tenth Off the Wall artist will be selected through a multi-stage review process that prioritizes input from Atlanta residents, youth, and representatives from social justice and community organizations. All Atlanta-based artists who apply will be considered in the first round of review. WonderRoot will select 30 candidates from this open call whose work best aligns with the mission of Off the Wall. Our Local Artist Selection Committee will review the list of 30 candidates and select 5 finalists for the position. Through an online poll, 1 artist out of the 5 finalists will be selected to join Off the Wall. 

Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to be in touch with Amanda Mills,  WonderRoot Programs Manager, at amanda@wonderroot.org
