The Producing Intern will work closely with our team to plan for and produce a series of events and programs tied to the development of new work. Events are likely to be primarily online, but may shift to small in-person gatherings should it become safe during the course of the internship. As producers wear many hats, the Producing Intern will contribute toward many facets of our day-to-day and event-related activities, including development, marketing, artist coordination, and event planning and logistics. With our creative realities shifting from day to day, the Producing Intern will play a major role in imagining new possibilities for this uncertain time. This internship will be working remotely part of the time and will work about 20 hours a week.
