Public Program and Community Engagement Internship

Studio Museum in Harlem
Working Time
Part Time

The Public Programs and Community Engagement department curates accessible, art-inspired experiences, offering a broad range of opportunities that inspire creativity, incite critical dialogue, and foster community. From artist talks and panel discussion to hands-on workshops and off-site collaborations, our department unites and supports the Museum's diverse, adult audiences. Our intern will assist the department in researching, coordinating and producing public programs, events and special projects. The intern will gain hands–on experience in arts administration, nurturing cultural partnerships, managing and corresponding with program attendees and organizing tech support. As our department regularly interfaces with other Museum departments, the internship provides a unique opportunity to observe the many moving pieces involved in programmatically supporting living artists. The intern will be expected to attend Thursday and Sunday programs and must possess excellent computer and interpersonal skills, be proficient in research and writing, and be able to handle multiple projects at once whilst working independently.

The Public Programs and Community Engagement Internship is designed for undergraduate and graduate students interested in careers in Arts Administration, Art History, programming, production, or related fields.
