, in collaboration with the Office of Economic Development
and the Office of Arts and Culture,
has developed a pilot internship program that provides paid internships for Seattle’s young creatives. These internships range between 12-24 weeks long and give youth hands-on training in various creative fields. Interns will work 12-14 hours weekly at their internship sites, and 1-2 hours with Northwest Folklife.
The Cultural & Creative Workforce Development Internships are catered for youth ages 16-25 from a variety of Seattle communities. The program takes a collaborative; community-informed approach to provide opportunities to sharpen skills and competencies in culturally and creatively focused occupations. The program aims to develop creative capital, give hands-on experience, foster networks and shape the emerging network economy. We center artists, and we are excited to build capacity for creatives in our communities and provide successful internship experiences for youth and young adults.” Please note right now all duties will be done remotely. However once stay at home order is lifted, interns will be advised by host site supervisors when to report in.
All internships are currently filled. Please stay tuned for future opportunities.
