I’m creating a team of leaders in the City of Compton, to create a MAKERS PLACE. This Place will be the hub for a community of Maker’s, inventors, DIY’er and aspiring entrepreneurs to make, build and invent. This “Makers’ Place” will be filled with tools, equipment and resources the community needs in order to make whatever inspires them and to share their knowledge with others. This place will give access for people in a disadvantage community to expand their creative expressions for fun, business or education.
I’m looking for a couple of talented people who would be interested in partnering with me to make this happen. We will be meeting with community members, gathering information, assimilating it, developing spatial relationship, space needs, site information, estimates and concepts to create the primary framework for an architectural program. The program will be used to seek funds to hire an Architect to design the facility. Your creativity and design expressions could also be a part of the package and could be used for fundraising presentation, branding, website design and possible partnership with the consigned architect.
You will gain experience on developing a scope of work, gathering information from community and assisting with meetings and follow up conversation. You will learn how to create a presentation package for fundraising. You will be developed is creating a team within a team to leverage your time and management. Since this is a partnership we can co-create opportunities that will be jointly beneficial.
This is an unpaid internship program. The rewards are tremendous, with the opportunity to help empower a disadvantage community by creating the space to elevate and harvest the talents from within. Your work could be the product used for communicating their ideas and needs with the community as well as the funder and in choosing the architect.
You should have a background/interest in architecture/urban planning and/or community outreach. You need to be able to work as a team, a desire to expand your public speaking, have a sense of developing/learning how to put together a scope of work, estimating and scheduling . You should have a sense of building space, and a good sense of architecture/construction terminology. You will learn how to create architectural information from community needs, create space needs, data sheets, site info into a report etc. . You should have ability to create electronic conceptual drawings or sketches to convey information in a useful way to the community, or an architect. This may require 10-15 hours of time a week.
If this sounds interesting please contact me as soon as possible. Our first Community kick off meeting is this Thursday (June 27th) at 3 PM in the Center of Sustainable Communities in Compton.
