Calling all media gurus! AMOA-Arthouse is on the hunt for a take-charge grad student looking for a unique intern experience this summer. Working alongside the museum’s Communications team, the Creative-In-Residence is tasked with planning and executing cutting-edge online content to promote our brand, exhibitions, and programming schedule. This position is perfect for the balanced right/left brain individual with the expertise, enthusiasm, and vision to carry out projects from brainstorm to completion.
While the Creative-In-Residence will help define the exact scope of assigned projects, responsibilities include 1) content creation and curation for a program-specific Tumblr; 2) on-site documentation of museum happenings (video and photography for social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Vine); 3) collaborating with the institution’s various departments to develop well-researched, informative, original blog content; and 4) leading innovative initiatives that engage our audience in new ways and expand our reach.
Application materials are flexible and could potentially run the gamut from a mock-up of an official AMOA-Arthouse Tumblog to a video pitch or detailed proposal for new media initiatives such as Tweetups. Inventive, non-traditional applications preferred, with one requirement: materials must relate directly to AMOA-Arthouse and show familiarity with our mission, sites, exhibition, events, and/or education programs. Demonstrated knowledge of successful new media efforts at major US contemporary art museums a plus.
Qualifications: impeccable, quality-minded writing; attention to detail; penchant for thinking outside the box; and the ability to remain strategic in the fast-paced world of social media. Ideal for a creative self-starter looking to manage his/her own schedule and daily tasks with minimal oversight. Start date is ASAP for summer “beta” internship, three-month commitment through September 1 required (with possibility of extension when position officially launches in its two-semester format in the fall).
This position is open to graduate-level applicants only and is unpaid.
-Individual Level membership for the internship’s duration
-Automatic, free access to all non-fundraiser member events and non-ticketed public programs
-Access to and borrowing privileges from the Jones Center library
-Selection of recently published art books
-Invitation to an informal interview with Senior Curator of Public Programs and Community Engagement Andrea Mellard
