Help InLiquid connect artists and audiences in Philadelphia and gain an understanding of how a small non-profit organization serves the arts community. InLiquid is seeking to actively welcome our diverse local community to our free art exhibitions and programming. Through research, phone calls, email and in-person meetings, the Audience Development Intern will engage in direct community-building and local outreach to civic groups, businesses, apartment complexes, and schools to increase awareness of and participation in our free arts programming.
The Audience Development Intern will report to the Development Director and participate with InLiquid communications and programming staff in designing and fulfilling outreach and community-building efforts.
The intern will enthusiastically convey information about our mission and programming, growing strong, positive connections in the community, and learning about the needs and interests of neighbors and other local stakeholders.
The Audience Development Intern will enter and update information about community contacts in our Neon CRM database and other systems so that we can maintain consistent communications over time.
Reaching out to local businesses, the Audience Development intern will encourage them to participate in our events and support local artists through event sponsorships and shared promotional opportunities.
Additionally, the Development Intern will help to draft and design event-specific emails, fliers, and printed and digital materials to share with neighbors and businesses.
The ideal Audience Development Intern will care deeply about the arts, be a strong communicator, have database or Excel experience, and be able to work both independently and collaboratively.
Our Philadelphia neighborhood is diverse and includes many Spanish-speaking families, a large Islamic population, and a growing number of young professionals moving into new luxury apartments. The Development Intern must be open-minded, compassionate, and aware of issues around diversity, equity, and inclusion. Spanish language skills are helpful, but are not required.
Preferred candidates will have a background in Arts Administration, Visual Arts, Communications, or another related field. Strong writing and computer skills are preferred. Design skills are useful, but not required.
Please email your resume, a cover letter, and 3 references to Juliette Cook, Development Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is not a paid internship but is available for credit with some colleges.
