Seeking an Intern!


Dances for Solidarity is seeking an intern for a book project. The book seeks to exist in two forms: a hardcover collection of movement scores created through the project and a smaller, ‘zine-like publication that can easily be sent to incarcerated people to use as a dance tool.

The intern duties would include:

  • Scanning handwritten letters

  • Managing a digital archival system

  • Transcribing letters from handwriting to typed text where necessary for clarity, fundraising, or publishing

  • Possible assistance with grant writing or pulling grant materials

The intern should be comfortable with:

  • Archiving

  • Scanner technology

  • Word processing

  • Working out of a residential space

And should possess the following skills:

  • General comfort with computers, scanners, hard drives

  • Fast typer

  • Open communicator

  • Great email etiquette

  • An interest in social justice, performing arts, publishing, archiving, or all of the above

Anticipated duration of this internship is from mid-May through mid-September, but there is flexibility around dates and length of time. There may be an opportunity for further work and an expanded role after the completion of the internship.

This is an unpaid internship, approximately 8-10 hours per week. College credit is available via Dances for Solidarity’s fiscal sponsor and book project partner, Culture Push.
