Fall Semester, 2017; Spring Semester, 2018; Summer 2018
Arts Administration Internship
Are you interested in learning more about how small not-for-profit arts organizations survive and thrive? Ithaca is home to a small arts colony dedicated to supporting New York State artists and writers by providing two- and four-week summer residencies, subsidized retreat space in the off-season, and various public events.
Our arts administration internship is designed to give you hands-on experience in nearly every aspect of running a small arts organization, including but not limited to: marketing, finance/fundraising, organizational management, program development, and general office administration.
Saltonstall has a full-time staff of one and a part-time staff of one. You would be working directly with the organization’s executive director, Lesley Williamson, and occasionally with Suzanne Onodera, the assistant to the executive director.
Note: during this Fall semester (2017), there will be a focus on promoting and supporting a variety of public programs including alumni readings and an exhibition (both in downtown Ithaca), as well as a fundraiser at the colony.
