Arts Internship Program (for Organizations)
Reopening Arts and Culture Safely

Guidance for the nonprofit arts community to navigate COVID-19 and reopen arts safely.

 

Established in 2000 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the LA County Arts Internship Program supports and strengthens the cultural sector of LA County by providing access to high quality opportunities for college students of all backgrounds to gain experience, understanding, and transferable skills relevant to careers in the arts, the creative economy, and engagement in public life. Students develop a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration, better understand the role of the arts in communities and develop skills that can be put to use in their future careers.

The program is a sister program to The Getty Foundation’s Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship Program, which provides similar internships in museums and visual arts organizations. The County gratefully acknowledges The Getty’s Foundation support of the educational program components of its Arts Internship Program.
