Artists, Cultural Organizations, & Creative Businesses - join us at the Spring Arts and Humanities Internship Fair!

Are you an artist, cultural organization, or creative business interested in having a student intern for the spring or summer? Then we invite you to join us for the Arts Entrepreneurship Initiative’s Spring Arts and Humanities Internship Fair on Tuesday, February 13 from 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM at the Fine Arts Center Atrium! The fair will be an opportunity for you to meet prospective interns in our arts (studio arts, art history, history, theatre, music & dance), humanities, and arts management programs. Internship postings for the fair need to be submitted by Wednesday, February 7 - space is limited so early application is highly recommended. See Internship FAQ for more information.

The first half-hour of the internship fair will be an opportunity for you to setup and network with other area artists and arts organizations. We will have refreshments just for internship providers and time for you to meet and talk. The opportunity to network with fellow artists and arts organizations was one of the top highlights articulated in our follow-up surveys from prior successful internship fairs! Students will begin arriving at 11:30 AM.

Participation in the Internship Fair is free, but space is limited. If you are interested in participating, please read the AES Internship FAQ page and fill out the AES Internship Posting Form (one for each internship opportunity) found at the Internship FAQ page and email the form(s) to by Wednesday, February 7.

If you need help filling out the form or have any other questions, please contact Todd. Note: Students are now able to work from home studios or home offices. Check out this article for more information on the simple process for working with a student intern in your home-based office or studio.

The Arts Entrepreneurship Initiative’s Spring Arts and Humanities Internship Fair is co-sponsored by the Arts Extension Service, the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, and BDIC. We will provide:
- Free parking
- Tables, tablecloths, and chairs
- Refreshments
- A resume/best practices workshop for students prior to the fair
- Marketing and promotion of the fair among our arts and culture students and faculty
- Encouragement to arts and culture students, faculty and staff to attend the event!

Prior to the internship fair, we will send you an email letting you know what materials you should bring and what questions you should be prepared to ask and answer from prospective interns. We will also provide a campus map indicating where to park as well as other logistical information. We hope you can join us!
