I’m looking for interns to help develop participatory public experiences. As an intern you’ll be asked to make a significant time commitment and take responsibility for a specific project. I’ll work with you to develop a project plan and will provide mentor-ship throughout the project, but mostly, you’ll work on your own. Interns are needed to develop hands-on art experiences through workshops, demonstrations, or performances; as well as organize artist talks, conferences, lectures, film festivals, and concerts. You will be responsible for researching, developing, designing, and producing programs. Most projects will require you to pursue and secure new collaborations with University departments and community groups.
The ideal intern is self-motivated and enthusiastic with excellent organizational skills; and sees museums as welcoming centers for the community. Candidates should have an eagerness to work with outside groups, the ability to take on a leadership role, have an entrepreneurial spirit, and want to help make something amazing happen.
This is your chance to play a part in the development of the “new” Barrick Museum. The internship is unpaid, but it may be possible to get school credit. If you’d be interested please send a cover letter and resume to Aurore Giguet, Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please title the email ‘Programming Intern’. Dates and hours are flexible.
