Festival Internships

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival seeks motivated, enthusiastic candidates for a variety of internships. These range from in-season (May – June) operations, development, programing, and digital media positions to year-round administrative opportunities. All internships are unpaid opportunities that allow candidates to get practical, hands-on knowledge in arts and entertainment and the production world. Hours are flexible and adaptable.

Internships are shaped to work with the mutual benefits of matching the festival’s needs with the candidate’s areas of interest. Select candidates can apply internship work towards select accredited college programs (as available). A successful candidate will be responsible for numerous production and administrative activities and participate in the dynamic environment of festival production. Candidates should have an interest in event production, the arts, and nonprofit organizations. Candidates must have exceptional communication skills and be able to work independently as well as with a team. Positive, productive and self-motivated individuals will fit successfully within our team.

Please submit cover letter with resume, weekly hours available, ideal areas of focus, and internship duration sought to Mike Michelon at Candidates are asked not to request submission status updates. Resumes are kept on file for future consideration. If your qualifications match current openings, you will be contacted directly. Thank you.
