The mission of Glendale Arts is to integrate the arts into the identity, growth, and economic vitality of the City of Glendale by presenting programming and creating partnerships that benefit youth, patrons, artists, organizations, and businesses in the community and at the Alex Theatre.
The Alex Theatre Marketing & Event Intern will work in support of the day-to-day management of event bookings, marketing, and operations. The Covid-19 mandated shut-down of public gathering places gives the intern insight as the venue’s short-term and long-term future develops. The intern will report to the Alex Theatre’s Managing Director and will collaborate with various departments, primarily the Theatre’s Client & Audience Services Team.
The target start date for the internship is August 3, 2020 with a December 18, 2020 end date. The 400 hours required to be completed during this time frame during consecutive weeks of work will consist of an average of 15-20 hours per week, with possible fluctuations dependent upon various factors. The start and end dates and weekly allocation of hours are flexible but must remain in keeping with LACDAC’s requirements.
The Marketing & Events Intern must have strong critical thinking, writing, and communication skills and mindful attention to detail. The ability to both work in a team setting and independently in a fast-paced environment are critical.
The intern must also be proficient and comfortable with Microsoft Word and Excel, Internet research, media outlets, and social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Experience with managing and/or contributing to a page for a brand, project or other applicable entity (including a personal brand or project) is a plus, but not a requirement.
Familiarity and/or experience with FileMaker, WordPress, Constant Contact, Dropbox, Google Drive, and the Adobe Creative Suite are also preferred, but not required.
The intern will also be required to adhere to and maintain compliance with Glendale Arts’ COVID-19 health and safety guidelines and protocols.
