The Mortimer & Mimi Foundation empowers cities by free, outdoor summer concerts as a means to revitalize public spaces and bring diverse groups of people together in a welcoming place. As part of the Levitt Foundation’s ongoing commitment to better understand the audiences served by the programs we support, we are conducting an on-site survey of the Levitt Pavilion concert audiences this summer.
We are seeking freelance field researchers, undergraduate or graduate school students and recent graduates in the Lehigh Valley area who have a background in the social sciences and/or experience with on-site survey collection.
Fielders will need to be available to work periodic evening shifts throughout June and July. A total of 600 completed surveys will be collected over 12 to 15 different concerts, averaging approximately 50 to 60 per evening. Concerts typically occur Thursdays through Sundays. We prefer researchers to be at every concert, but will not be required if we have enough fielders for flexible scheduling. A schedule of selected concerts, as well as back up dates to accommodate inclement weather, will be provided by mid-May to applicants. Fielders will be paid for their time.
We are also looking for a local coordinator for the fielders, to oversee scheduling and other administrative aspects of the survey collection. Coordinators will receive a stipend in addition to the hourly wage provided to researchers.
