Arts Host Information
Do you have a summer project that could use help from a college intern? Are you interested in partnering with the Arts & Business Council of New York to create a pipeline of diverse future arts leaders? The Diversity in Arts Leadership internship program brings the talent and enthusiasm of undergraduates—carefully selected and matched with your organization’s needs—to your staff.

Each arts organization hosts an intern for 10 weeks. Interns work full time Monday through Friday, including weekly site visits to other organizations in the program. In addition, interns and host arts supervisors attend a program orientation breakfast and a closing ceremony.

Each intern receives a $3,200 stipend. ABC/NY and host arts organizations both contribute to this payment.

As this program seeks to promote diversity in the field of arts management, preference is given to students from underrepresented backgrounds.

Program Dates:  Monday, June 4 – Thursday, August 9, 2018
