LVA Special Project Internships

LVA Media Internship

LVA's Media Intern will work side by side with LVA’s Director of Marketing and Communications to help execute various video projects relating to: visual art education, community outreach, and artist support. Strong media/video background required for helping complete various projects such as shorts for social media, mini-documentaries on specific projects, and more. Skills required: good organizational skills, strong communication skills, and proficiency with the Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Premiere and Photoshop. 

The Louisville Visual Art internship program welcomes college juniors, seniors, and recent graduates who wish to supplement their education and professional experience by working in a not-for-profit arts organization. LVA internships offer experiential education in a challenging, hands-on environment in exchange for a substantive contribution from gifted and interested individuals.

Internships require a minimum commitment of fifteen hours per week for three months, during which time interns complete a specific project as well as daily assignments. Interns also participate in departmental meetings and various educational programs, as well as attend LVA events. The media internship also offers a "fast track" approach where an intern could work full time for one month to expedite the internship. 

LVA does not offer paid internships but does participate in many cooperative education programs. Students interested in academic credit should contact their college counselor for more information. LVA seeks diversity in its intern staff and provides equal opportunity to its applicants.
