The Corita Art Center is seeking an intern to support our ongoing efforts to coordinate and develop online community engagement inspired by artist, educator and social justice advocate, Corita Kent.
The Getty Marrow Communications and Design Intern will work directly with the Director and Project Manager to conduct research about Corita Kent’s practice and pedagogy, assist with marketing and outreach, and curate content related to Corita Art Center’s robust collection. The intern will endeavor to make the CAC collection more accessible through thoughtful content, notably the continuation of the “into the archives” series. The intern will be responsible for tracking and archiving media (including digital) coverage related to Corita Kent.
General responsibilities will include the creation of a monthly communications calendar that includes dedicated emails, social media and programming content. Through this larger communications calendar, the intern will have the opportunity to create a capsule content project based on a selection of Corita’s artwork and/or archival material, to highlight and share from their point of view. This will be shared through CAC channels and possibly, through online educational programming. The intern will gain valuable practical skills related to media, SEO, marketing, and reporting while strengthening communication, design, and storytelling skills to reach new audiences. The intern may occasionally work with the Digital Collections and Research Intern, conducting, collections research to produce digital content for social media and other outlets. The Intern will also be expected to partake in weekly team meetings with all CAC staff.
