Education Programs and Productions

Department description

The Education Programs and Productions team strives to offer programming for every age, every art form, every level, everywhere through our Music Education, Theater Education, and Dance Education initiatives. From producing new work for young audiences to behind-the-scenes presentations for all ages, and from career development programs for aspiring artists to 'try on' classes and workshops for beginners, Education Programs and Productions supports arts learning, both broad and deep. We are committed to President Kennedy's call, "To further the appreciation of culture among all the people. To increase respect for the creative individual, to widen participation by all the processes and fulfillments of art..."

Project description

The Programs and Productions (P&P) intern will participate in the administrative and logistical support of programs in Music, Theater, and Dance Education with significant focus on:

2019 Arts Summit: The Summit is an annual convening designed to bring together thought leaders from the arts and other fields. The Intern will learn the intricacies of presenting a national conference, as well as interdepartmental and cross-institutional collaboration through research, communication with internal and external stakeholders, logistical planning and support, and day-of implementation.

P&P Season Activation: The Intern will participate in the research and design of interactive educational program extensions (ex. workshops, discussions, etc.) to support learning and deepen engagement for the current and upcoming seasons.
