The Moth Migration Project needs one or two interns or assistants to prepare for our next series of exhibitions. You can work in person or virtually as I need both.
I will keep this short and sweet. The Moth Migration Project will open a new exhibit at the Heard Natural Science Museum, in July 2018, Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre, St. Andrews, NB, Canada, September 2018, and the Bundaberg Regional Gallery, Bundaberg, Australia, April 2019. I can’t do this alone. Would you like to contribute to this amazing project?
Here are the basics of what an intern or assistant may do. I should add this is currently an unpaid job until funding comes in.
Duties: Receive and Catalog paper moths, Update Google Database to reflect the collection, email participants to confirm delivery of artwork, send postcards to recognition to participating artists, scan or photo moths for entry into database and website, engage artists and makers through social media to participate in project by making moths, help prepare for exhibition in July at the Heard Natural Science Museum, TX, in September in Canada and April 2019, Australia. Engage in brainstorming ideas for fundraising and community printmaking workshops. Learn to work with a fiscal sponsor.
Skills in any of the following areas: printmaking, gallery management, library science, museum studies, social media marketing, fundraising, administration or a simple willingness to learn.
Interns will learn about printmaking and drawing mediums, museum and gallery archiving practices, social media marketing strategy, strategic planning for major and multiple events, community programming. They will also be trained on using Google forms, sheets and email and how to integrate it into business practices. The Intern will learn about fiscal sponsorship and how to create a campaign for project funding. The intern will be invited to create an original artwork via linocut printing and participate in the MMP exhibitions.
If you are in NYC, we will work in my studio in Red Hook Brooklyn. Ideally, you will come at least one day a week. If you are virtual, we can still work together quite efficiently.
College students may arrange college credit. Please write a two to three paragraph email describing why you want to intern with the Moth Migration Project, what you hope to learn and what skills you can offer. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
