Antenna is always in search of motivated volunteer interns to assist with ongoing operations and major programs throughout the year.

Antenna programming includes Antenna Gallery, the literary journal and live reading series RM220, the annual Draw-a-thon, Platforms Fund grants, publications that focus on the intersection of literature and visual arts, and a new residency program, Spillways, that hosts a range of national and international artists and writers. Please explore our website to get an idea of the extent of programming produced by a core group of working artists and writers involved in the day-to-day operations of the organization.

Volunteer and Internship work may include assisting directly in the administration of the organization with the following:
– Research
– Grant writing
– Book keeping
– Copy writing/editing
– Database and website updates
– Brochure and publication layout assistance
– Install and deinstall of art works
– Maintenance of gallery
– Event coordination

With particularly ambitious individuals, there is always the possibility that they may develop their own original programming.
Because Antenna is a small organization, the Antenna Internship is a rich and rewarding experience for visual art, creative writing, and arts administration students with interests in being heavily involved in community organizing or aspirations of starting an organization.
Ideal candidate will have the desire to understand the inner workings of a small grassroots arts non-profit, feel comfortable working unsupervised, be highly self-motivated, creative, and have a background or desire to work in the visual and/or literary arts.
– Ability to work with and maintain confidential data.
– Ability to apply troubleshooting and problem solving skills as issues arise.
– Excellent attention to detail, among other planning and organizational skills.
– Represent Antenna in a manner that demonstrates the highest standards of professionalism and
ethical conduct.

If seeking school credit, a 10 hour per week commitment is required, with the length and schedule of the Internship to be developed to fit the ideal candidate’s schedule.

Interested Individuals should apply with a cover letter and resume (attached as a PDF to an email) to : with “internship” in the subject line. Interviews are rolling throughout the year.
