MASS MoCA Internship Program

MASS MoCA's intern education program is made possible by the generous support of Agnes Gund, Bob and Gayle Greenhill (in honor of Susy and Jack Wadsworth), and the Tin Man Fund.

Summer applications are closed. The list of available internships for fall has not been finalized but will be posted here in the next few months. The application deadline for fall internships will be July 22, 2012.

Paid interns are given $100/wk stipend and free housing within a block of the complex. Some of the internships listed below may be available for fall. Each applicant may apply to a maximum of 2 departments. The deadline for applications for fall will be July 22, 2012.

    Performing Arts Production Interns (3): Interns work with the Production Coordinator, Master Carpenter, Master Electrician, House Sound Engineer, and house crew on all aspects of technical theatre and film. This includes hands-on in all of the following areas - carpentry, lighting, sound, audio/visual, and running crew.

    Performing Arts Administration (2): Intern works directly with the Managing Director of Performing Arts in the coordination of current and future season planning, general office work, and maintaining and updating all performing arts files. The intern will alternate between helping the Assistant to the Managing Director and Company Manager with drafting event programs, researching upcoming artists, assisting with artist services and arranging transportation and housing logistics of visiting artists, staff, and fellow interns. You must have a valid US driver's license.

    Box Office (1) : Interns assist both the Box Office Manager and Assistant Manager with promoting performances and exhibitions to the public, act as a greeter and provide customer service (general information about MASS MoCA, North Adams, Western Massachusetts - often includes giving directions and/or recommendations of other highlights of Berkshire County) as well as maintaining the overall look of the lobby. Interns are responsible for providing phone and administrative support, processing ticket orders, maintaining mailing list database, and daily cash draw. Interns will also assist in giving tours of the galleries and any other visitor relation duties that may arise.

    Development (1): Reporting to the Manager of Foundation and Corporate Grants, the Development Intern will work directly with development staff on all aspects of MASS MoCA's fundraising activities, including research, grant-writing, direct mail, special events and database management.

    Interns will be required to work up to 50 hours per week, although some weeks could be longer. Strong writing ability and previous experience interacting with the public are preferred.
