EFA Project Space is currently looking for fall interns to begin late August/early September and remain through mid to late December. Interns work closely with the Program Director, assisting with research, development, administration and marketing for the exhibitions, ongoing programs and events. Interns will also have the opportunity to work with EFA's other major programs - the EFA Studio Program and Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.
There are several internship positions offered, but all interns share the general responsibility of overseeing the gallery during exhibitions, as well as answering phones, greeting visitors, providing the public with information, and performing light database work. Each internship is a collaborative, hands-on position that requires strong writing, research and communication skills, resourcefulness, and the ability to multi-task in a small non-profit environment. Specific intern responsibilities are as follows:
- The Exhibitions Intern will gather and maintain supplemental materials and research for current and future exhibitions, sustain artist communication, assist in the coordination of related exhibition events, and maintain the gallery space and artwork on view.
-The Special Projects Intern will be involved in the production of a number of ongoing special projects, consisting of artist-organized projects, public performances, and a unique residency for arts administrators who are practicing artists. This intern assists with seeking partners/sponsors, development and fundraising, and facilitating the realization of special projects.
-The PR/Development Intern spearheads publicity efforts. This intern will design and improve creative press strategy, build press and general public mailing lists, make contacts, and oversee social media and correspondence with press.
Applicants must be able to carry out assigned tasks independently and feel comfortable working on multiple projects at once. Applicants should be organized, responsible, and detail-oriented individuals with strong writing ability, professional phone manner and sound computer skills. Proficiency in Adobe CS and Microsoft Office is preferred. Undergraduate, recent graduate and graduate students are welcome. Interns work 2-4 days a week depending on availability. This is an unpaid internship, however college credit may be available.
