The UMass Amherst Arts Extension Service, the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, and BDIC are pleased to present the Arts Entrepreneurship Initiative's Fall Arts and Humanities Internship Fair! The Fall Arts and Humanities Internship Fair will take place on Thursday, September 14 from 11 AM - 2 PM at the Fine Arts Center Atrium, and will feature local internship opportunities in the arts, arts management, and cultural non-profit fields. Internship providers in attendance will include non-profit arts and cultural organizations, museums, performing arts organizations, galleries, publishers, social justice organizations, creative businesses, and independent artists with fall (and some spring!) learning opportunities for UMass students. Refreshments will be provided. See our Fall 2017 Program for a list of internship providers attending - you can see a full listing of all available fall internships at our Current Arts and Culture Internship Postings.
Students can land an internship in one afternoon! Most providers are looking for interns for the fall and may request to further interview intern candidates immediately following the fair. If students are interested in doing an internship for credit, they will be able to secure a position in time for fall add/drop.
Why intern? Career Services recommends arts students complete three internships prior to graduation in order to be competitive in the field. Internships provide students hands-on experience and help them build necessary professional skills through real world practice.
