The Museum Programming Intern will work directly with the Programming Coordinator. Interns must commit a minimum of 12 hours per week for this internship, with required hours select Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons each week. Since this is an unpaid internship, interns are encouraged to earn academic credit for this experience. Please consult with your faculty advisor.
Intern duties will include program research, developing activities for programs, and drafting social media copy to promote programs. They will help plan both children’s and adult programming at Blueberry Festival in July, as well as the Me & My Dollhouse summer camp. They may be asked to assist with the implementation of a variety of programs, including Design After Dark, the Single Sisters Series, and Free Sundays at the Museum as needed. Interns will gain experience planning and executing a museum program.
The successful intern will be detail oriented and organized. They will exhibit an eagerness and ability to learn quickly, and able to transition from task to task, as needed, in a fast-paced environment. The successful intern will be able and willing to interact with members of the public of all ages. Prior experience in programming or planning events is preferred, but not required.
