Grand Vision's (GVF) mission is to engage the LA Harbor community through culturally inclusive arts experiences centered on the Warner Grand Theater (WGT) and the 150-seat Grand Annex in San Pedro. GVF was formed to save the WGT, a beloved movie palace, and create a hub for the arts in the Harbor Area. Today, GVF's primary projects are the Grand Annex Concert Series; Meet the Music, an 18-month music curriculum for 1,500 local elementary school students; and promotional support for the WGT.
Grand Vision, an arts presenting organization located in historic downtown San Pedro's Arts District, is looking for a Digital Archives Intern. The goal of the ten-week project is to digitize and store our two historical collections, one that tracks Grand Vision’s history in the community and another of movie palace history in the South Bay. The Intern will manage the migration of current website content, conduct research on digital archives record-keeping and public access, and assist with the digitization and storage of physical historical materials. Secondary projects include general office and summer event support.
This intern position is ideal for a history, business, public relations, communications or other academically well-rounded student with high level computer skills.
The ideal candidate will have interests and/or experience in the study of history, community development, information management, and/or website technology. A high level of oral and written communication skills are mandatory as are a fluency of basic computer skills (including Office Suite and Google Docs/Sheets). The best candidate will be able to balance multiple projects and be a resourceful researcher and innovative thinker. Must be able to work independently.
