Applications are now being accepted for interns and host organizations. Rising high school seniors may apply until March 30. The deadline for Baltimore area arts organizations interested in hosting interns is March 2. Both applications can be found by clicking here.

The internship program is managed by Young Audiences of Maryland through the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies. Bloomberg Philanthropies increased its support from 25 students last year.

The 35 Bloomberg Arts Internships interns, selected through a multi-step application and interview process, will work with arts organizations three days a week, visit cultural institutions once a week, and engage in professional development trainings once a week.

Students will develop organizational work plans, start college applications, analyze art, and complete final presentations highlighting their experiences to be shared with the community on the last day of the program. Internship focuses vary among organizations to include production, education, development, community engagement, artist engagement, video, music, administration and more. Host organizations will include performing arts centers focusing on dance and music, art museums, libraries, theatres and television studios.
