Cultural & Creative Workforce Development Internship
Northwest Folklife in collaboration with the Office of Economic Development and the Office of Arts and Culture developed a pilot program, which provides paid internships for Seattle’s young creatives. These internships range between 12-24 weeks long, and give our youth hands on training in creative fields. Youth work 12-14 hours weekly at their internship sites, and 1-2 hours with Northwest Folklife.
The Program services youth 16-25 from a variety of Seattle communities. The program takes a collaborative; community informed approach to provide opportunities to sharpen skills and competencies in culturally and creatively focused occupations. The program aims to develop creative capital, give hands on experience, foster networks and shape the emerging network economy. We center artists, and we are excited to build capacity for creatives in our communities and provide successful internship experiences for youth and young adults.” Please note right now all duties will be done remote. However once stay at home order is lifted, interns will be advised by host site supervisors when to report in.
