- Internship Program
Autonomie Projects offers students (preferably undergraduates and graduates) an opportunity to proactively contribute in the planning and programming endeavors at a non-profit arts organization. All internships correspond with the yearly academic calendar and divisions of a school year. Internships can also extend beyond these dates as needed.
The most important aspect of working at Autonomie Projects is networking with an array of artists and curators, as well as understanding the day-to-day operations of running a non-profit gallery. All applicants are welcome to apply, but we greatly advise you to review our line up of contributing collaborators and determine if we fit your general interests in art and curatorial production. Applicants must have excellent verbal and written communication skills, a keen attention to detail, and a willingness to work in a hands-on environment. Interns at Autonomie are guaranteed two days of work every week with a set schedule. Applicants should inquire about openings in our intern program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals wishing to pursue the arts, development, marketing communications, and arts administration will especially benefit from training in business administration, development, research, marketing communications, and operations. As an intern you will gain hands-on expertise in entrepreneurialism, preparing and installing exhibitions, academic research, grant writing, public relations, registration, artist portfolio development, advertising, marketing, PR, event planning, web design, more.
