The Kennedy Center

Education Programs and Productions

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..."

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:

2018 Arts Summit

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

2018-19 P&P Season Activation

The Intern will participate in the research and design of interactive educational program extensions (ex. workshops, discussions, playlists, etc.) to support learning and deepen engagement.

2017-18 Season Review and Evaluation

The Intern will support the collection and review of data and feedback on programs and learn how data informs planning.
