Internships at Spudnik Press focus on bringing students into every aspect of facilitating a community studio. Internships balance administrative tasks with hands-on printing activities. Interns assist with daily maintenance of the shop, included cleaning, stocking, and ordering supplies. Marketing tasks include website updates, online marketing, writing short event summaries and product descriptions for new posts and the online store. Administrative projects can include financial and statistical record keeping, processing donation-recognition letters, and maintaining a database of members, students, other authorized printers, and an art archive. Depending on the skill sets and interests of the student, there are also opportunities for assisting with workshops through our Young Artist and Education programs, installing exhibitions, and assisting printers through the Residency or Publishing program. After becoming familiar with how Spudnik Press Cooperative functions, we work with students to choose a self-guided project that builds off of their abilities and learning goals, while meeting the needs of our studio.
We are able to work with students to match internships to their school schedules and requirements. However, internships typically begin the first week of January, June, and September, and continue for 14 weeks. We are able to work with approximately two interns per internship period. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
