Got "Killa Swag?" Intern for a Summer Culture Program

If you have “Killa Swag” or love fashion, this is the program for you! The Dr. Beverly J. Robinson Community Folk Culture Program (FC) will present its Summer 2011 program with the theme, “Killa Swag.” The FC program is accepting applications from youth (male and female) ages 13-21. 

This program is located in the Bronx, where hip-hop music and fashion was born. In this program you will learn about the origins of fashion in African, American, American, Caribbean and Latino communities. This program is presented in conjunction with the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. 

The summer intern program includes a lot of great field trips to museums and activities such as street-fashion research, interviews and photography. If all of these great activities are not enough for you to apply, you will also receive money to participate! Interns will receive a stipend of $300-$400 for the summer.

Program Dates: July 12-August 11, 2011

Program Time: Tuesday-Thursday (and some Fridays) from 10 AM-5 PM

Email the program director, Jade Banks, to get additional program details or contact her at this phone number: 718.652.6256

I hope you will apply to this amazing program. If not, spread the word to someone that you know!
