Duties include daily business functions, research/analysis, coordinating staff/Board committee meetings and special projects aligned with the candidate's individual focus.

Intern Position Description:

With a staff of four full-time employees working interdependently, a studio/rehearsal space in the Pittsburgh Opera building in the Strip District, and a team of dancers, musicians and designers; this position offers a valuable experiential learning component that more compartmentalized internships in large organizations cannot offer.

• Develop marketing strategies for promotion of studio activities and events;
• Assist with local and national marketing including: updating press packets/promotional materials, analyzing audience data and surveys to track audience trends;
• Assist with tracking audience/participant data for all studio, outreach and performance activities;
• Assist with preparation of local and national grants and final reports, upkeep of grant calendar and deadlines; and
• Research new donor sources and corporate sponsorships.

Intern Will Gain:
• Diverse skills and hands-on experience in nonprofit management for a small to mid-sized performing arts organization;
• Experience supporting Attack Theatre programs that include local theater and site-specific productions, arts education and national touring initiatives;
• Experience coordinating and communicating with artists;
• Opportunities to give creative insights or feedback regarding potential projects/performances, marketing and sponsorship strategies; and
• Opportunities to interact with professionals in the nonprofit sector, specifically the arts.
