Internships benefit providers with a fresh look at one’s work and the opportunity to mentor up-and-coming arts professionals while simultaneously receiving professional support. Interns gain essential skills and exposure to the real-world experience of working in the field.

Are you an artist or with an arts organization, become an Internship Provider.

Students, find internships and learn the practical skills you need to work in the arts and humanities fields! Internships give you an inside view of day-to-day operations within creative businesses and arts and humanities nonprofit organizations. You will build relationships with professionals in your field who can play a critical role in your professional development.
