Become a Creative Time Intern

 

Creative Time is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our fall internship program! We’ll be offering positions across departments including Marketing & Communications, Development, Programming, and Global Initiatives. Besides gaining hands-on experience producing projects, developing research and contributing to organizational goals, interns will also participate in both internal and external planning meetings, attend staff presentations, and travel to local cultural institutions for behind-the-scenes tours.

 

Our fall internships are paid, and require a commitment of a least two days every week. Internships run from September 19th through December 16th.

 

We encourage undergraduate, graduate and very recent graduates (within the last year) to apply. International applicants will be considered but must make their own visa, travel, and accommodation arrangements. Selection for Creative Time’s internship program is made on the basis of the applicant’s interest and motivation in working for Creative Time, demonstrated ability to contribute, and commitment to a meaningful work experience. Interest and experience in nonprofits, public art, and the arts more broadly are a plus.
