The A.R.T./New York Internship Fair In Partnership with the American Theatre Wing
The A.R.T./New York Theatre Internship Fair, in partnership with American Theatre Wing, is an opportunity for students interested in a life in the theatre to meet and greet with over 60 nonprofit theatre companies in New York City. All theatre companies present at the fair are seeking interns to support their work in fields such as production, marketing, fundraising, general management, and more. While companies are offering internships for the upcoming Summer and Fall semesters, students can also find more immediate placement.
The Alliance of Resident Theatres / New York (A.R.T./New York) is the service and advocacy organization for over 350 not-for-profit theatres located throughout New York City.
The American Theatre Wing welcomes your questions, opinions and concerns.
