Arts Marketing Intern

At nearly 75-years-old, the Orchestra is one of the oldest nonprofits in the State. It is the only Orchestra in the country associated with a full-time Music School. As a result of its long and illustrious history, the nonprofit has a collection of vintage photographs, videos and materials (program books, season brochures, etc.). This summer, the organization will be working on a new website that will combine both aspects of the nonprofit (Orchestra and Music School), and we are looking for an Intern to create a visual project that tells our history and story. The multimedia visual art project will be earmarked for promotional purposes and/or on our new website and/or an exhibit/window display. 

Through cataloging and studying our photographs, the Intern will develop archiving and filing nomenclature, and then create a visual essay that will be used for promotions. In addition, the Intern will be involved in the fast-paced day-to-day operation of the Orchestra and Music School as a member of the marketing/communication department. The Intern will gain experience with ticketing via our box office, assisting with the management of summer concerts, the summer season, and working with the creation and printing of brochures, posters, postcards, press release, etc. In addition, there is an opportunity for the Intern to photograph and/or develop short videos of summer workshops and special events—also for promotional purposes.

The preferred applicant will have a basic understanding of:

  • Photography & videography skills
  • Video editing skills
  • Writing skills
  • Social media experience
  •  Basic web development/website management experience
  • Customer service

Projects include:

  • Curating and cataloging vintage and new photographs and materials to create a visual archive.
  • Creating a visual history of the RI Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School to be used for promotional purposes.
  • Photography and/or videography of the Music School’s summer programs.
  • Behind-the-scenes look at a fully operational Orchestra from ticketing to performance.
This position pays $12/hr, 28 hours a week for 9 weeks. In addition, you will receive a $580 stipend for completing the Arts Intern component of the program.
