The Neighborhood Developers Community Event Coordinator Consultant
Temporary
Part Time
Keywords: Consultant, Event Planning
Description
Background

The City of Revere and its Revere on the Move (ROTM) program, Women Encouraging Empowerment (WEE), and The Neighborhood Developers plan to utilize themes of healthy eating and active living for a place-based cluster project with four interconnected project elements, all which improve, utilize and/or activate public spaces within the Revere TDI District in support of a more creative and engaged community. This work is conducted in support of our vision for the Shirley Avenue neighborhood: a strong, healthy, and attractive neighborhood that is welcoming to families and residents of all ages and cultural backgrounds with a vibrant business district, mercados, open spaces, accessible housing, and economic opportunities for residents and businesses. This will lead to increased partnership growth among our partners and constituents, and an even more culturally rich community that is reflective of those residents living there.

The activities will support the creative economy and bring the public together. They will also retain and generate foot traffic into the district, and capitalize on visitors to the beach and users of the BlueBikes system (there are two BlueBike stations in the immediate area). Our cluster project consists of the following four individual projects:

(1) “Creative Arts at the Mobile Farmer’s Market” that will make use of Sandler Square and/or the Shirley Avenue municipal lot (located on the commercial corridor), which will generate awareness and a platform for events and encourage the participation of food trucks and/or other prepared or fresh produce food sales.

(2) Healthy and Active Living: Culinary Arts and Zumba. This is a two-fold project consisting of (A) Cooking demonstrations that utilize fresh produce from the mobile market, and (B) Zumba classes taught by local community members. Both the culinary classes and the Zumba classes will foster local entrepreneurs

(3) Enhance an Open Space: Fitzhenry Square, which is located a short distance from Sandler Square. This will be facilitated by TND with its Revere Community Committee leading community envisioning for space and use-of-space improvements..

(4) The Shirley Avenue Cultural Festival, an annual event that will expand in 2022 to bring all of the partners together to showcase themes of healthy living and healthy eating.

Scope of Work

The consultant will attend weekly planning meetings, follow up on next steps from planning meetings and report back to the project’s leadership team. Through the planning and promotion of these events, the consultant will support a network of engaged and empowered residents and businesses in Revere. One of the goals of the consultant will be to strengthen the leadership and entrepreneur skills of residents so that they can be cultural agents and drivers of the neighborhood's growth and economic resilience. Another goal of this consultant will be to strategize about connecting the three projects to illustrate a holistic approach to healthy active living while building community.

The consultant is responsible for the execution of grant deliverables, recruiting and managing volunteers, collecting and recording data related to the grant, and pulling permits if needed. We expect the consulting services to continue January - September, include evening and weekend hours, and require some in-person work in Revere and some remote work as well.

Consulting services will be guided by The Neighborhood Developers and will be supervised by the project’s leadership team. The consultant will be compensated up to $11,000 and is responsible for ensuring (independently or collaboratively) the completion of the following project tasks on time and within budget:

NSCDC & the Arts

NSCDC began using the arts as an engagement strategy in 2012-2013 in the development of the award-winning Point Neighborhood Vision & Action Plan, a neighborhood revitalization strategy developed by a partnership of NSCDC, the Point Neighborhood Association & the City of Salem which sought to improve the quality of life in Salem’s Point neighborhood. After impressive levels of engagement, NSCDC continued to experiment with the use of arts & in 2017 launched Punto Urban Art Museum (PUAM), a public art collection which has grown into a nationally recognized initiative.

PUAM was founded to break down the socio-economic barriers between the Point & the rest of Salem & the North Shore region by addressing long-held stigma rooted in racism, classism and xenophobia. A collection of 75+ murals within a 3-block radius, PUAM is designed to capture the vibrant neighborhood spirit in the Point and serve as a point of pride for neighborhood residents and business owners. It also serves as an invitation to people not from the Point to visit. Public art is the hook, but visitors to PUAM learn about the history of the Point and, NSCDC hopes, gain a deeper understanding of the experience of people living in the Point in the past, present and future. It continues to be both a remarkable collection of public art, as well as a platform for people to engage in a meaningful, authentic way with issues of race, equity and inclusion.

The Future of PUAM

Since founding PUAM in 2017, NSCDC continues to advance an annual line-up of visual, performing & experiential art programming. NSCDC completed an Arts Strategy in early 2020 which defined the program’s priorities & laid the groundwork for programmatic growth and sustainability. The core programmatic focuses for the next era of PUAM are:

Continue to produce culturally-relevant, resident-centric public art designed to beautify public spaces within the Point neighborhood in Salem and elsewhere as the opportunity arises; and

Advance PUAM’s efforts to address stigma by offering educational tours and workshops to schools, civic groups, corporate groups, etc.. Educational tour curriculum is designed to authentically convey the cultural, economic & social identity of the Point & offer an opportunity to build empathy & understanding, reducing stigma over time.

As an affordable housing developer, NSCDC has incorporated an arts strategy into each of its current affordable housing projects. As a result, NSCDC will be opening a series of exciting new program spaces over the next five years which will provide platforms for the Punto Urban Art Museum team to foster programs and partnerships aligned with these two core programmatic focuses. Filling the newly-minted Director position is a critical next step not only in maintaining existing programming, but in preparing program for these new spaces.

About the Role

The Director of Punto Urban Art Museum (“Director”) is an exciting new position at NSCDC who will have primary ownership over the organization’s work in the arts, in collaboration with a diverse team of allies & partners in other roles within the organization.

The Neighborhood Developers - Housing Assistance Manager

Are you enthusiastic about combatting displacement? Do you care deeply about the success of gateway immigrant communities? Consider becoming the CONNECT Housing Hotline Manager at The Neighborhood Developers (TND), a successful community development corporation in Chelsea, Revere, and Everett, MA. The Housing Hotline Manager is responsible for the oversight and operation of the Housing Assistance Hotline, which was established in May 2020 to help preserve tenancies during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic fallout. This is a rare opportunity to help re-shape a successful rental assistance program into an even more comprehensive approach to helping families remain in their homes.

Overview:

The Housing Assistance Hotline was created in May 2020 so that eligible residents can access state-wide emergency housing assistance programs administered by the Massachusetts’ Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). The Hotline has helped households apply for and receive over $12 million in emergency housing assistance while maintaining a client-centered advocacy model. Applications are submitted to our partner organization, Metro Housing| Boston, for approval. The Hotline also provides residents with information about tenant rights and connects callers with legal aid, emergency housing resources, and other wrap-around services as needed.

The organization builds affordable homes, supports households to achieve greater financial mobility, and organizes community leaders on issues related to neighborhood conditions as well as social and economic justice. TND’s headquarters is in Chelsea where it has operated since 1978. The organization expanded into Revere in 2010 and began offering some of its services in Everett in 2018.
