In the summer of 2018, Recess piloted a new opportunity for our Assembly collaborators called FieldworkFieldwork places our Assembly Peer Leaders & Artist Apprentices who have been in the program for at least 40 weeks in intensive full-time, eight-week internships at partner cultural organizations. Our participants receive a stipend, transportation costs, and regular check-ins from Recess, and our host partners receive an honorarium, training, and check-ins to assist in providing a supportive experience.
Partner Cultural Organizations:
The Brooklyn Museum
Whitney Museum Youth Insights


If you are interested in being a Fieldwork host partner, contact Jackie Chang, Director of Engagement, at
