Administrative and Program Internship

Fall 2018 | Stipend: $500/month

Hours: Part-Time, Temporary, 12 hours/week, evenings required and some Saturdays

Supervisor: Artist and Artistic Engagement Manager

Threewalls’s new exhibition model and organizational philosophies—mission, vision, and values—situates the organization as one working at the intersection of art and community. With the new focus on socially-engaged art, artistic practices, and programming, Threewalls also finds itself engaging social justice and embracing the opportunity to advance inclusion, equity and access through the work. These are core to how we work and will guide the intern during their time at Threewalls.

As the admin and program intern, the intern will be responsible for assisting the Artist and Artistic Engagement Manager with the day to day operations and programs. Specifically, the intern will assist with In-Session, which is a remix of the traditional lecture or panel. In-Session is a critical interdisciplinary salon that incorporates reading, conversation, and performance together. The salons are focused on a selection from a shared reading list which is compiled based on a theme. Artists, curators and community members curate the In-Session, selecting the reading and the performers. After the conversation on the selection, it is activated by performance—music, song, poetry, dance or movement. Additionally, the intern will help with the RaD Lab program, Threewalls’ research and development incubator for selected artists that incorporates public engagement in the artists’ respective neighborhoods.

In terms of administration, the intern will assist preparing materials for Board of Directors board meetings, committee meetings, and grant materials. In assisting with these important tasks, you will receive a well-rounded experience in non-profit management that supports the development of programming.

The intern is expected to participate in Threewalls events during the fall, and evenings are required as well as some Saturdays. Additionally, the intern is encouraged to engage with the Threewalls team to learn about each working part of the organization and how each part contributes to the whole.
