18th Street Arts Center's internships are designed to give students real world professional experience. We offer self-directed creative projects which in the past have included opportunities to curate shows, program events, and publish their own writing in arts publications and in our annual catalogue, and documentary initiatives. Each project depends on the interests of the individual and on the framework of the internship. As such, our interns are given the opportunity to develop their resumes with real accomplishments that have genuine professional impact. These are unpaid internship (college credit eligible) opportunities.
