Community Design Manager will co-create and implement project plans for the SaludArte project in partnership with PCHD, a human-centered design (HCD) consultant and local community-based organizations to: convene communities that were disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, capture the stories of their experience, select local artists to create interpretative representations of those experiences, and co-coordinate a countywide cultural health and wellness fair upon the arts’ completion.
