About Interning with PICA
Are you a current student seeking professional experience with a nonprofit arts organization? Starting a new career in arts management and administration? Our interns work closely with PICA staff on all aspects of programming and operations, contributing to our small team while gaining an insider’s perspective on everything from marketing to development to curation.
We expect each intern to identify and carry out independent projects in addition to assisting staff with general duties. All interns are expected to demonstrate an appreciation for and understanding of contemporary art.
PICA internships are unpaid. Interns receive a PICA membership and free admission to programs and special events. While PICA cannot provide housing, travel, or monetary compensation for interns, we are happy to work with your educational institution to arrange for course credit.
