Public Space Coordinator

About the position: 

The Detroit Riverfront is one of the most diverse gathering spaces in Michigan, and it has transformed the way our community comes together. Each year, roughly 3 million visitors experience the Detroit Riverfront, including the Detroit RiverWalk, the Dequindre Cut and associated green spaces. With more than 300,000 of those visitors participating in free or low-cost public programing on the RiverWalk or Dequindre Cut, activating our riverfront in an impactful way is critical to the Conservancy. The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy seeks a Public Space Coordinator to assist us in achieving our mission of being a world-class gathering space for all.

The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy was formed in 2003 as a 501(c)(3) organization with the mission of developing access on the Detroit International Riverfront. The entire vision is 5 ½ miles of revitalized riverfront property, from the Ambassador Bridge to Gabriel Richard Park, just east of the Belle Isle Bridge, and will include the construction of a continuous RiverWalk along with plazas, pavilions and green spaces. The Conservancy is responsible for the improvement, operations, security, maintenance and programming of the Detroit Riverfront in perpetuity.

The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy hosts more than 150 public program events throughout the year that are either facilitated by our programming team or by program partners. At these public programs, the Conservancy is proud to serve more than 300,000 visitors from all over SE Michigan and Detroit. The Public Space Coordinator will assist the programming team with the implementation of public program offerings and manage vendor relationships.

The Public Space Coordinator will be responsible for seeking and fostering vendor relationships for new public program offerings, assist in volunteer services and lead the day-to-day offerings of Conservancy public programs in conjunction with the programming team.
