The 2014 BEAT Performing Arts Festival is coming into focus, and it’s going to be a pretty raucous program (to say the least). Can’t reveal anything specific yet (other than what we did last month), but let’s just say Brooklyn better be really ready for anything (and everything).
We’re excited today to announce our 2014 summer internship program…where emerging arts administrators, producers and marketers are given the amazing opportunity to work with us in three very different ways providing a bird’s eye view of what it takes to pull a complex event like the BEAT festival together.
2014 Internship Program: Some Specifics
This year, we are offering internships in these three areas:
Help us shape and produce the specific events within the festival. This is a terrific opportunity for someone interested in production management, lighting, stage management and event production. You will help us coordinate all the tech/setup logistics for each performance in September, while also learning a ton about producing work in non-traditional spaces. You will work directly with our Production Manager and Associate Producer/Production.
Work on all facets of our “wild & fun” marketing campaign for this year, including social media, print, community outreach and other messaging/branding concepts for each event. An amazing chance to work with our marketing team, including Brian Tate.
Help our Executive Producer Stephen Shelley grow BEAT’s base of support, which includes recruiting sponsors, partners and ambassadors for this year’s festival. This is a great chance to learn about the nuances to fundraising and growing a new non-profit, while also seeing first hand how to attract event sponsors.
There are small stipends available for each intern and the hours/time commitment will vary based upon which role you are being considered for. We are assuming though that you will have other work and commitments during the summer. It is preferable that you are available during the festival, Sept 11-20th (though not mandatory).
To be considered, please fill-out the form linked below (3-minute completion time) and we will get back to you ASAP:
