The intern for the Local Arts Advancement (LAA) department assists in supporting local arts agencies nationwide by providing field education opportunities, tools and resources and connections with colleagues. The LAA Intern is responsible for researching, synthesizing, posting, and generating content for the LAA department’s associated web pages, newsletters and educational programming. To generate this content the intern will utilize internal and external information to create immediately accessible resources for local arts administrators. Topics include but are not limited to: public art, art and public safety, civic design, funding information, arts education, arts management, and grantmaking. The finished content will then be published on Americans for the Arts’ in collaboration with the web team and the field education team. The LAA Intern should possess strong written and verbal communication skills, and be comfortable writing about and researching a variety of arts administration topics. As the LAA Intern works under four supervisors, the ability to effectively juggle multiple tasks is important. Other projects include assisting the Vice President of Local Arts Advancement, and the Local Arts Services Director, Local Arts Advancement Program Manager, and the Local Arts Services Associate with associated tasks.
