Arcosanti - An Urban Laboratory in the Arizona Desert.

Becoming a Resident


To become a resident at Arcosanti one must first complete a Five-Week Workshop. Many people choose to stay on at Arcosanti for periods from one month to many years to live, work, and participate in the unique life of the prototype Arcology. We are always looking for good people to work with the Project on an extended basis. If you would like to stay on and help after your Workshop, you may apply for a volunteer position in a specific area. We expect volunteers to participate 40 hours a week in their departments.

Paid employment possibilities will depend your work performance, available staff positions, and your long term commitment. In considering persons for employment, we evaluate your performance during the workshop and look at other factors such as responsibility and self-motivation. If there are no immediate openings, you are welcome to remain as a volunteer until a position becomes available.

If you know you are interested in long term paid employment, you should contact the manager of the department you want to be in.  For a list of available positionsclick here.
