OUR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
We have built a democratic, casual work atmosphere that produces events and festivals at a professional level displaying the highest markers of quality and style. Working in this environment requires everyone to strike a careful balance between being self-motivated, being culturally sensitive and curious, and independently-minded, while enjoying being a team player with shared goals.
Our Internship Program is intensive but provides student interns with a hands-on experience. We show them how an arts and culture nonprofit/start-up is run, the daily tasks that go into managing an organization, and have them help out with brainstorming, event planning, task delegation, and administrative tasks, while taking their future interests into consideration and providing each student intern with guidance throughout the duration of their internship.
THIS IS A VERY SOCIAL AND INTER-PERSONALLY ACTIVE INTERNSHIP. Your contributions, ideas and critical thinking are heavily weighed and considered.
