Draper Alumni Involved in Morbid Anatomy Museum and Day of the Dead in Mexico

Salvador Olguin, Draper class of 2009, is involved in two cool projects that might interest Draperites:
First, he is working as a scholar in residence and event organizer with the recently inaugurated Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn. The museum is currently featuring its first exhibit, The Art of Mourning, and was written up in the Times:  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/27/nyregion/the-morbid-anatomy-museum-opens-in-brooklyn.html?_r=0
In conjunction with the museum, Salvador is also planning a cultural tour to Mexico City and Oaxaca to celebrate Day of the Dead in Mexico this year. Salvador himself is the expert guide for the tour, contextualizing art, archaeological sites, and Dia de Muertos celebrations:  http://observatoryroom.org/2014/05/14/muerte-en-mexico-a-special-field-trip-to-mexico-for-day-of-the-dead-to-visit-sites-important-to-the-history-of-death-in-mexico-october-31-november-4/
Nice work, Salvador!

Potential Employment for Grad Students

Draper alum Hillary Sites, the Staffing Director of Where There Be Dragons, an experiential education company, sends us several job postings at her company, see more below:
The education company that I have been working with for the last 5 years runs truly transformational courses and the key to this whole process is the instructors that we hire.  They have a hand in designing each course, writing curriculum, mentoring students, and teaching what they love while in a myraid of different settings.  Everything that I learned at NYU I was able to apply in the field while teaching.  It is a great opportunity.  Plus, I do remember how hard it was to find jobs after graduating.
We are in the position to be hiring new field staff.  I have attached a few job ads and would love to post in an alumni newsletter or circulate it within Draper.  Please let me know if you need more information.
Many thanks,
