INTERN with White Bird

White Bird is looking for interns who are interested in a 3-6 month commitment.  Many of our interns have stayed with us much longer. You will help in areas of Marketing, Audience Services, and Development, approximately 15-20 hours per week during regular office hours (9am-5pm) at the White Bird office, located in SW near OHSU. Additional help includes attending our performances, helping us set up our lobby display, managing our table, answering patron questions, and assisting with set up of the lobby display. 


Our internships are unpaid, but you will have the opportunity to attend wonderful dance performances, meet dancers from around the world, and learn about the details and logistics of presenting 12 contemporary dance companies each season.


If you are interested in becoming a White Bird intern, please send a cover letter addressing your interests and skills, and a resume to Sarah Toor sarah [at] whitebird [dot] org (subject: Intership%20interest) (sarah[at]whitebird.org ) and Chelsea Bushnell chelsea [at] whitebird [dot] org (subject: Internship%20interest) (chelsea[at]whitebird.org).
