The Music Center’s Marketing and Communications intern will create and implement a marketing strategy for The Music Center’s Dance DTLA in summer 2021 as it evolves from a digital format, which responded to the pandemic, to a hybrid live and streaming series of events. The intern will be engaged in all aspects of the promotion for this series, including social and digital media strategy, media relations, collateral development and distribution, and research and analytics, among other tasks. Importantly, the intern will gain significant hands-on knowledge and experience in a high-energy, fast-paced, collaborative environment and will gain significant transferable skills that can be leveraged for future opportunities in marketing for the arts and/or other nonprofit organizations. The intern will work approximately 20 hours per week from June through October 2021.


Qualified candidates will possess a creative mindset and problem-solving skills and an ability to think critically. Strong project management and organizational skills are required, as well as the ability to effectively communicate information and ideas in a written and verbal format. The candidate must be willing to collaborate with all colleagues and have a keen interest in marketing and communications. Experience using MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook) is required; working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite is a plus.


The Music Center convenes artists, communities and ideas with the goal of deepening the cultural lives of every resident in Los Angeles County. With a commitment to relevant, accessible programming by, with and for all Angelenos, the non-profit performing arts organization presents world-class dance with Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center, free and low-cost public concerts and events, as well as K–12 arts education programs along with workshops, performances, interactive experiences and special events on its digital platform, The Music Center Offstage.
