All interns must be curious, organized and committed to expanding traditional definitions of art and culture. Familiarity with Macintosh computer platforms is a must. Excellent writing skills and some experience with photo and/or film editing software such as Adobe Photoshop and InDesign (or Quark) is highly desirable. Knowledge of WordPress and html is also recommended.
Internships are 8-10 weeks in length, and the hours and start dates are variable. A small honorarium of $500 will be awarded at the conclusion of the internship.
