Summer Artivist Fellowship Program

TaskForce is excited to announce the Summer Artivist Fellowship Program to be launched in June 2020.

Under the leadership of staff with expertise in the fields of marketing, analytics, partnerships management and design, Fellows will delve into projects with the ultimate goal of shaping public opinion and policy through creative culture. Highlights of the program include featured monthly speakers and a collaborative project.

We believe we are stronger and most effective with a diverse team leading the charge. We are committed to creating a more inclusive culture for all, starting within our own company. People of color, women, LGBTQ individuals and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. TaskForce is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
