ArtTable, the leadership organization for professional women in the visual arts, invites female college seniors, graduate students, or recently graduated students to apply for our Summer Mentored Internship for Diversity in the Visual Arts Professions for the summer of 2013.
The program was created to introduce emerging women professionals to the range of opportunities available to them and is intended to support women from backgrounds generally underrepresented in the field. ArtTable is dedicated to supporting women at all stages of their careers and endeavors to assure a racially, ethnically, geographically, economically and age diverse art community. Through one-on-one mentoring relationships with ArtTable members, interns have the opportunity to work with an established leader in the field and gain exposure to a range of professional activities. Each selected intern receives a $3000 stipend for eight weeks of work and will be responsible for securing their own housing during the internship.
ArtTable aims to host up to five interns across the country in the summer of 2013. To be eligible, applicants must be female students who are college seniors, recent graduates, or graduate students seeking career opportunities in the visual arts professions.
