 Description:
     As the national service organization for the not-for-profit
     professional theatre, TCG offers services in line with our
     mission: to strengthen, nurture, and promote the professional
     not-for-profit American theatre. TCG serves theatre artists and
     organizations by recognizing and encouraging activism, artistry,
     advocacy, and global citizenship. We provide professional
     development for theatre leaders, research and data analysis for
     the field, advocacy on the federal level, as well as the
     publication of American Theatre magazine, ARTSEARCH, and works
     from our award-winning book program.

     Our internships are offered year-round and are generally held in
     the fall, spring, and summer semesters. There is no housing or
     stipend available, but TCG makes sure to provide other worthwhile
     benefits and perks. Some of these include: the unique experience
     of interacting with the national theatre community, networking
     opportunities at our field-wide convenings, practical experience
     in a variety of professional disciplines, free copies of American
     Theatre magazine, free books and plays, and discount ticket
     offers.

     Duration: 3 months (September-December)
     Hours/week: 20-40

     Communications and Community Engagement Intern
     Intern will support the Communications and Community Engagement
     team with communications efforts, including the editing of press
     releases and online platform updates; outreach; and projects
     related to TCG’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Initiative. TCG
     is committed to advancing a more diverse, equitable, and
     inclusive theatre field to help transform the inequities and
     injustices of our broader culture. The intern will work closely
     with the Director of Communications and Community Engagement and
     the Associate Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion. As
     needed, the intern will also work on logistics with the
     Conferences and Fieldwide Learning team in preparation for the
     annual Fall Forum and National Conference. The internship
     requires a highly organized and creative individual with a
     demonstrated commitment to theatre and/or the arts and an
     interest in communications and facilitating programs to advance a
     more inclusive field. Excellent interpersonal and communications
     skills (both written and spoken), a collaborative working style,
     and the ability to handle multiple projects and deadlines are a
     must. Candidates should be fluent in Microsoft Word and Excel.
