2018 Call for Artist Instructors

The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks Department (OSMP) is seeking artist instructors for the 2018 OSMP and the Arts Program, a non-residential program that includes outdoor based hike workshops on OSMP lands.

OSMP is looking for artists who are outgoing and comfortable presenting and teaching groups of approximately 30 people, and are able to share their connection to OSMP lands and how these landscapes have inspired their creative process. Instructors will need to be able to lead a three hour interactive hike that offers a combination and balance of contemplation, interpretation, inspiration and technique. Painters, dancers, writers, poets, musicians, photographers, illustrators, performers, artisans are encouraged to participate.

Artists will participate in the following:

  • Meet with staff to review hike outlines and pre-hike the chosen trail
  • Program preparation and delivery

The application deadline is Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 5:00 pm. Acceptance notifications will be sent in late-March. Proposed programs will take place outdoors and need to be able to accommodate possible weather changes.
