A note from our last intern:
If you are looking for a mind-blowing and maybe a little hallucinatory experience Continuum is the place to be. When I first started the internship I honestly didn\'t know what to expect, but they are good people who made me feel welcomed. Not only is their work exquisitely brain draining but it is art. As an intern my photographic skills enhanced because there is always a good shot to take (they are a very photogenic group). They are always encouraging people and will always tell you thank you for your work. ALWAYS. I\'ve learned how to set up a live-streaming account to reach online viewers. Their work is very contagious and if you feel the need to perform they are very accepting of it. Best internship I\'ve ever been a part of with the very best people! I think everyone needs to experience Continuum in their life.
Application Deadline: January 15th, the earlier you apply the better.
