Internships at APAP
The Association of Performing Arts Presenters internship program is designed to provide meaningful learning opportunities and on-the-job experience to college juniors/seniors, graduate students and recent college graduates with an interest in the performing arts and/or arts administration.
The APAP internship program is made up of two components: 50% project-based; 50% departmental support. Each APAP intern will complete a project of his/her choice. The chosen project must adhere to the following guidelines. The project must: have a focus or be a subject of interest to the intern or applicable to their major/area of expertise; provide a resource or service to APAP or the presenting field; and, once completed, be a tangible piece to be used in a portfolio when job-seeking or interviewing. Interns will be assigned a project supervisor, and have access to high-level staff on an ongoing basis for consultation and support on the project. Interns will present his/her project to the full staff upon completion.
In addition to the selected project, interns will provide departmental office support to one of the following divisions: membership, marketing or programming.
