An internship at DCAC provides the opportunity to become familiar with the workings of a small, non-profit, arts organization, an opportunity that is especially beneficial for emerging artists, curators, up-and-coming theater professionals and anyone interested in arts administration. As a twenty-year presence in DC's visual art and theater world, DCAC provides a stepping stone to the city's broader arts scene. Interns are exposed to the broad range of visual and performing arts events happening in DCAC's gallery and theater and attend DCAC events for free.
General intern duties include communicating with supporters and press, maintaining all of our social media outlets, managing the DCAC member database and other daily administrative tasks. There is also the possibility for interns with particular interests to develop individual projects in areas such as graphic design, development, or web design.
Intern hours are Wednesday through Friday, from 2-7pm. Ideally, interns will be available for all of these hours, although arrangements can be made for shorter hours if necessary. College credit can be arranged for interns who are available to work all of the above hours. An interest in the arts is a must!
