Tehran Streetstyle is a visual introduction to the Iranian underground fashion scene and the young people who play active roles in shaping and defining it. This book presents an alternative view of Iranians by challenging mainstream Western notions of Iran and fashion as well as domestic government regulations. Can you say #coffeetableonfleek?

Yes I need this.

Want to be working on an activist fashion blog, producing an ethical clothing line, working to organize a Chicago-based sewing co-operative of refugee women, building an online community platform to share voices from around the world, building a network and collaborating with Muslim creatives and creatives of color internationally, spending time with someone who is perpetually craving ice cream (that's me), AND making money? Read on.

The long-awaited Winter/Spring JooJoo Azad internship is here! Due to high volume of applications/interest and larger project needs, there is not one but TWO internship openings for Winter/Spring: Marketing Editor & Project Assistant! Both internships are 20 hours per week for 6 months and interns are paid a stipend at the completion of the internship.

While the Project Assistant internship is only open to Chicago-based applicants (as you'll be working directly with the refugee sewing co-operative), the Marketing Editor internship remains open internationally! 

The JooJoo Azad internship is designed to support AMEMSA (African/Middle Eastern/Muslim/South Asian) women/femmes who are building their empires -- in entrepreneurship, journalism, media, and personal creative projects--and work with them in developing and furthering their networks, connections, portfolio, writing, community organizing, and leadership. We cannot rely on our oppressors to tell our stories. We must document our own narratives. 

Creative, activist-minded AMEMSA women/femmes who are ready to take sh*t down--online and offline--are encouraged to apply! 

Note that you do not have to be a USA citizen to apply!

Application deadline is January 31, 2018 and interviews will take place the following week. The position will begin early February 2018 and interns are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours a week for 6 months, and after completion of the internship will receive a stipend. Click the link below to learn more about each position, as well as more information on application information.


Happy applying, and can't wait to read your apps!
