Opportunity for Internship



Deadline for applications March 21, 2016 


WORKSHOPS

Workshop interns assist CPW staff in the facilitation of the Woodstock Photography Workshop & Lecture series, in which national and international photographers serve as guest instructors, which runs from the end of May through mid-October. Four interns are selected each year to work with CPW’s Workshop Manager and related staff. It is the ideal hands-on-experience for any emerging photographer seeking to enhance their understanding of the craft, become exposed to different teaching styles and photographic approaches, and pursue a life-long passion in photography.

Selected interns must live in or relocate to Woodstock or within the Hudson Valley / Catskill Region for the duration of the internship. Working, reliable independent transportation is required, as these internships include both on and off site work. Interns are required to work three days per week, Fridays through Sunday (unless otherwise specified) May 20 through mid-October.


ARTS ADMINISTRATION

Arts administration interns are immersed in the contemporary photographic arts through learning and assisting CPW’s staff in the programs and services provided by an artist-centered not-for-profit. Three to four interns are selected each summer. Additionally CPW takes on 2-3 arts administration interns in the fall, winter, and spring.

This internship is the perfect experience for those seeking to acquire a deeper understanding of the opportunities and services available for emerging artists, as well as gain hands on learning experience in professional practices and standards. Interns’ experiences will enhance their capabilities in pursuit of a personal career as a working artist; or within the fields of arts administration (in either the commercial or non-profit sector), studio management, and more.


COLLEGE CREDIT

While CPW is unable to provide academic credit for this internship, many participants have been able to arrange college credit with their respective academic institutions. CPW staff will provide the necessary letters of support or evaluation needed to secure credits upon completion of your internship.

Candidates are selected on the basis of their interest and experience in photography and the visual arts, their ability to contribute significantly to CPW projects, and their openness to gain meaningful experience from the program.

Other internship opportunities are available. For more info please check our website at www.cpw.org. Please send your resume to info@cpw.org
