The Downtown Brooklyn Arts Management Fellowship Program is launching its second cycle!
The fellowship is a paid 6-month opportunity for a cohort of young people to gain experience and skills for careers in arts management. The program aims to increase diversity of staff in cultural organizations, by creating a route into arts management without unpaid internships or master's degrees. It is sponsored in the Brooklyn Cultural District: BRIC, Mark Morris Dance Group, Theatre for a New Audience and the Museum of Contemporary African Disaporan Arts.
Fellows will work in two 3-month work experience assignments at partner organizations. Assignment are available in all core areas of arts management, including Development, Marketing/Community Engagement, Education, Curatorial/Programming, Production/Tech and Administration/Finance. The work assignments provide hands-on experience in areas of interest and an opportunity to grow into new areas.
Fellows will attend a professional development program twice each week. The program includes hands-on skills in areas such as marketing, development and finance, leadership skills and job search skills. The curriculum will include speakers, a group project, and site visits. The fellowship is intended as a springboard for each fellow's professional network and career in arts management.
Schedule and Pay
This is a full-time program starting in September 2018. Fellows must be available for fulltime work on weekdays, and have flexibility to attending evening events. The fellowship will pay an annual salary of $33,000 plus sick and vacation leave and medical insurance.
Application Deadline: Sunday, June 3 at 11:59 PM. Decisions will be announced in July 2018.
