Become a Creative Time Intern

 

Creative Time is New York’s veteran and vanguard public art organization. We accept applications for our fall, spring, and summer internship programs. Our interns gain hands-on experience developing research, producing projects, and contributing to organizational goals. Interns are invited to apply to a specific department including: Events & Development, Programming, and Marketing & Communications. Our interns participate in internal and external planning meetings, attend staff presentations, and travel to local cultural institutions.
 
We encourage undergraduate, graduate, and recent graduates (within the last year) to apply. International applicants will be considered but must make their own visa, travel, and accommodation arrangements and be authorized to work in the United States. Selection for the internship program is made on the basis of the applicant’s interest and motivation in working for Creative Time, demonstrated ability to contribute to a team setting, and commitment to a meaningful work experience.
 
We are now accepting applications for Fall 2021 Internships. Interns should be based in the New York City area and able to work in our offices or at local project sites for the duration of the program, September 7 through December 17, 2021.
