Applications for the Winter/Spring 2021 session are CLOSED.

Benefits & Eligibility

Atlanta Contemporary offers internships to emerging professionals who are above the age of 18 years old and are looking to launch a career in the arts.

While this is an unpaid opportunity, our interns are provided with professional development resources such as workshops and training that help prepare them for success in the acquisition of part-time or full-time positions within the arts and culture sector as well as placement in continuing education programs.

You must have an interest or background in art, arts administration, arts education, nonprofit management, or a related field. Computer proficiency and excellent writing skills are a must. You should be a good communicator, well-organized, enthusiastic, and able to work with limited supervision.

Time Commitment & Guidelines

As allowed and under the guidance of our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures, interns should expect to complete two 6-hour shifts on-campus per week. Our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures govern day-to-day operations in accordance with CDC standards and include Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Social Distancing requirements.

You must commit to a minimum of 12 hours split between two days per week for a period of at least 90 days. The more time you can offer, the richer the experience will be. Schedules vary per candidate and are determined upon acceptance into the program. Please indicate your availability and any other scheduling concerns in your application form.

What We Are Looking For

Our interns gain experience in all aspects of what it takes to run a nonprofit art center. As we navigate the upcoming months where most of our programs and events remain within the digital landscape, we are eager to work with interns that can help us push our digital presence further.
