MEET-UP: Volunteer, Internship, and Research Opportunities in 2017

Interested in volunteer opportunities, internships, or research residencies with Water Bar & Public Studio?

This meet-up is a chance to learn more, ask questions, bounce your ideas around, and connect with a community of artists, environmental advocates, and neighbors!

Join us at Water Bar & Public Studio between 4 and 6PM on January 10th to learn more, or say hello online!


We are looking for volunteers with a variety of skills and interests to help sustain Water Bar in 2017! Volunteers tend bar (serving water), assist with ongoing art activities, or take the Water Bar pop-up to events and programs around the Twin Cities.


Assist Water Bar & Public Studio co-directors with special projects according to your own learning goals and background! Each internship will involve a focused project with individualized learning outcomes and a self-designed schedule. Open to students and anyone interested in a focused learning opportunity. Possible internship projects include: 

PUBLIC PROGRAMS & EXHIBITIONS: Assist with the development and presentation of public programs, events, artist exhibitions, and gatherings at Water Bar in Northeast Minneapolis.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: Research and develop materials and resources to aid Water Bar "water tenders" and related water advocacy and education efforts of Water Bar & Public Studio. May include travel to greater MN communities.

COMMUNITY CONNECTOR: Develop connections between Water Bar and other communities through relationship-building, listening, and creative collaborations.

SHOPKEEPER: Source and prepare sustainable water-related education products, artwork, artist books, and other learning materials and resources for the Water Bar storefront;

COMMUNICATIONS ASSISTANT: Assist with Water Bar communication and marketing of Water Bar pop-ups to companies, organizations, and others.


We are also open to "Reciprocal Research Residencies" in our Public Studio. Water Bar will host and support artists, scientists, activists, organizers, or students with self-designed research projects, art projects, public programs, exhibitions, or other activities at Water Bar. 


These opportunities are currently unpaid, though we offer the benefits of utilizing shared studio space, art materials, communication platforms, and other resources. Project-based internships and residencies will begin in early 2017.
