Arts Administration Internship


The Arts & Business Council’s Art Administration Internship is an exciting, hands on opportunity to learn about the operations of an arts non-profit organization, at every level. The intern will work closely with the Executive Director and the Operations & Programs Manager. Responsibilities will largely include but are not limited to: day to day administrative tasks, helping with the operation and promotion of A&BC’s programs, management of the A&BC’s social media strategies, assisting financial and development operations, and special research projects. The intern will learn the ins and outs of nonprofit administration while developing skills and gaining experience in office management, communications, project management, research, and fundraising. This internship is ideally suited for those interested in pursuing a career in arts administration, artist management, and/or the nonprofit sector.

The Arts Administration Internship is open year round to college students and graduates and masters students. The internship is a volunteer position, and a commitment of 15 to 30 hours per week is required. Please include what term/time period you are applying for and the days you are available to intern with us during that period.
