Description

Creative Engagement & Production Intern will be an important member of Inveritgo's small, lively team. Digital skills and creative innovation will be central to this position as the intern works to enhance and expand online programming development, contribute to ongoing social media and design materials, and support the Invertigo community as in-person classes and performances transition back into Invertigo’s repertoire. The intern will see all aspects of how a growing performing arts organization functions and creates on a daily basis. Most of the intern’s work will be between 9am-6pm, Monday-Friday, at the Invertigo office or remotely, depending on health and safety protocols at the time. Occasionally, Invertigo may ask the intern to help with evening or weekend events. This position will work 15-20 hours per week June through November.

Qualifications

The ideal intern will be community-minded, an excellent communicator and have an open, positive framework for working with a diverse range of people. Desired qualifications include: interest or background in dance, performing arts, creative production, public engagement, community-building, marketing and outreach, media and filmmaking skills. The Intern will be able to take direction on projects and develop ideas and content independently. This requires enthusiasm, clear communication, good time management, and the ability to work with clear focus and an attention to detail and the big picture. Often the intern will work with other team members of the organization and this will require a collaborative, thoughtful and professional approach. This project will require creative problem solving, artistic thought, organizational thinking, solution-building and the ability to quickly learn or figure out a variety of creative strategies, marketing approaches and technology platforms.

Background

Invertigo Dance Theatre is a contemporary dance company, creating thought-provoking programming that tells compelling stories, promotes artistic and physical empowerment, utilizes diversity in collaboration, and is accessible to communities that might not otherwise find joy in dance. In addition to making performances culturally and financially accessible, Invertigo’s Dancing Through Parkinson's and Invert/ED community programs offer classes and workshops to dancers of all ages and abilities.
