Working At Threewalls

Want to work with us and learn how we bring art and community together? Check out our Spring 2021 Internship opportunity below!

Programming Intern: April 1-May 31, 2021, possibility of extending to July 30

Hours: Part-Time, Flexible (10 hours/week)

An evolving Black-led nonprofit organization, that unapologetically celebrates Blackness, intersectionality, and exists through Black feminist practices, Threewalls fosters contemporary art practices that respond to lived experiences, encouraging connections beyond art. We center ALAANA (African descent, Latinx, Arab, Asian, and Native American) artists, creatives and collaborative projects, especially those which are best presented outside of traditional art spaces. Through the internship, we seek to offer a vibrant experiential opportunity for those interested in working within a progressive, thoughtfully inclusive environment.


Threewalls’s Programming Intern will provide administrative support to all programs including RaD Lab + Outside the Walls Fellowship and virtual engagements. They will gain insights into the ways Threewalls engages with artists, neighborhoods and communities across Chicago and beyond.


We are looking for applicants with knowledge of contemporary art, experience in exploring the intersections of art and community, and a strong interest in social justice issues surrounding race, disability and gender equity. As Threewalls offers more online content, we are particularly interested in those who have digital editing skills, and a clear understanding of how to use social media and virtual meeting platforms effectively.

More specifically, the intern will be responsible for the administration around our virtual engagements including transcription, scheduling artist meetings, helping artists in navigating equipment, and organizing footage and sound content.


The Programming Intern will work remotely; independently handle select tasks; and participate in Threewalls team meetings. Working hours are flexible. The Programming Intern will report to the Director of Programs.
