The Chehalem Cultural Center is accepting applications for an Arts Administration Intern to join our small, passionate team.  The Center’s staff pulls off a big job, and each team member is relied upon to be a leader and team-player. All staff members at the Chehalem Cultural Center are expected to be creative thinkers and independent problem solvers, and fun to be around. This is an unpaid internship.

Interns will work with the Arts & Public Programming Coordinator over the 3-4 month program, and will gain the skills to curate, coordinate and install an exhibition as well as coordinate public programming events.  Through this internship one will learn the inner-workings of a non-profit Arts & Cultural Center, gain skills in exhibition coordination and curation, and the ins and outs of putting on public programming.  Intern will also work with the Education Coordinator to coordinate Summer Art camp.
