Position Summary:

Reporting to the Director of the Center for Arts Learning & Leadership (CALL), 92Y Teaching Artists are practicing professional artists and educators in a range of arts and humanities disciplines who are committed to helping students discover and nurture their intellectual and artistic passions. CALL is one of New York City’s largest community arts education providers, creating dynamic programs, performances and talks for thousands of K-12 students and their teachers each year across the boroughs—and now nationwide through our digital-track offerings.

Teaching Artists will work with participating high school classrooms, leading six-week creative writing residencies. The residencies will have as an anchor students’ study of – and a live meeting with – acclaimed poet and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib. 92Y produces a flexible curriculum for our Teaching Artists to use and make their own in bringing the material to life for students.
