Imagine Art Program Analyst VISTA
About the organization
Imagine Art is an art studio & creative incubator in Austin, Texas that is empowering artists with disabilities to be leaders in systems change to improve the lives of Texans with disabilities. Imagine Art started two decades ago as an art studio for artists with physical and mental impairments. We have been consistently expanding its programming to meet the changing needs of its clientele. We are demonstrating how to creatively leverage public and private resources to establish innovative, inclusive spaces that are driven by art and art-making. Imagine Art is partnering with VISTA for our next-level development to expand new housing programs that allow Imagine Art’s clients the potential to live more independently outside of state facilities and group homes.
The AmeriCorps VISTA will serve to improve and integrate processes to establish tracking measures for launching the organization as a site that demonstrates a change in the delivery of long-term care. Position duties include observation and research to identify overlap within Imagine Art’s programs, establish a process to integrate and improve activities by creating shared systems, and highlight program weaknesses and strengths to create program recommendations and improvements. The VISTA will also provide staff training on performance measures and data tracking tools to provide support, evaluation, and redesign. Additionally, the VISTA will review a summary report that captures the process for data tracking and performance measures.
