The Artistic Programs Intern will design and create a catalogue of local and national artists to be used by the Artistic Programs Department with artists’ biographical info, resume, contact info, performance history and repertoire list. In creating this catalogue, the Intern will develop relationships with artists, artist managers and agents by contacting past and current MUSE/IQUE artists as well as new potential artists and managers. Excellent phone and email etiquette will be extremely important as well as attention to detail, creativity, research and organization skills. In addition to the A&R project, the Artistic Programs Intern will aid in the research, development, planning and coordination of 2-3 summer concerts. The Intern will work closely with the Artistic Programs Manager to prepare a slide show and multi-media presentation that will be used in conjunction with each of the concerts. Light filing and archiving of artistic materials will also be requested.
