The In Series-Opera and More! is proud to be offering a new ARTS INTERNSHIP PROGRAM – offering hands on experience to local students interested in the arts, and tailored to fit the individual needs, experiences, and interests of each applicant. Interns can choose to specialize in a particular area of non-profit arts administration or managements (development, marketing, outreach and education, graphic design, box-office management), or can opt for a survey experience receiving experience in each area. Interns work directly under Artistic Director Timothy Nelson, and answer to department heads. They can receive instruction, hands-on experience, and eventually an individual project assignment to concept, develop, and realize. The length of internships can range from weeks to months with multiple options for hourly commitment, and the scope can be determined in consultation with applicants and In Series staff. Interns receive a travel stipend to support their participation, and can use the program for course credit or to fulfil community service obligations.
