Summer Internships at Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown

Published March 9, 2011

Opportunity

FAWC’s Summer Program Internship is designed to introduce students to the workings of a nonprofit arts organization. The position involves a multitude of tasks designed to give each intern a basic overall understanding of how the organization operates. Responsibilities include: writing press releases and event introductions; staffing readings, gallery openings and public events; assisting in the Summer Program office with clerical work, mailings, and general office tasks; assisting with the management, cleaning and set up of the print shop and visual arts studios; painting and spackling the gallery; tidying classrooms and common areas; and tending the bookshop. The internship also requires setting up the daily breakfast and light cooking at the weekly events. No prior experience is necessary, but basic computer and office skills and a background in dealing with the public are assets. Interns will be expected to work approximately 25 hours per week, and must be able to commit to being at the Work Center for the full eleven weeks of the internship, June 6 through August 21. Interns are welcome, though not required, to attend three Summer Program workshops free of charge.

The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown is a thriving, creative community that changes each week during the Summer Program with the influx of new faculty members and students. It is a wonderful opportunity for anyone with an interest in writing and/or the visual arts to meet, share, and create with like-minded peers and established professionals.
