Programming Intern - Summer 2018

The Wassaic Project
Working Time
Full Time

Work with a group of young, passionate artists and curators at the Wassaic Project, a vibrant multidisciplinary arts organization based in Wassaic, NY. Learn about aspects of running an arts organization from curating, press, marketing, event planning, installation, gallery management and more. Because the Wassaic Project is a small, young organization, interns have a unique opportunity to contribute to the long-term identity of the organization and take on substantial responsibility. Interns have the chance to manage their own projects and will work on our Summer Benefit, our Summer Exhibition and Festival application process, curation, promotion and installation, our Artist Residency application process and logistics, and will help manage our Artist Residency program and events. Interns will work directly with artists as well as the directors of the Wassaic Project.
