Under the supervision of 18SAC’s Director of Communications and Outreach Jeny Amaya, the 2022 Getty Marrow Communications and Outreach Intern will provide communications and outreach support for current exhibitions on view, current and upcoming artist projects, and the upcoming exhibitions by Ranu Mukherjee, on view in the Propeller Gallery and Imaginary Dwellings, a group exhibition on view in the Slipstream Galleries. In addition, the intern will support 18SAC’s Arts Learning Lab @ Home workshops, which happen live online and are then edited to be available as on demand videos, as well as Borderless, 18th Street Arts Center’s new membership program on Patreon. Through research, outreach and content creation, the intern will produce a visually engaging story table for 18th Street Arts Center’s Culture Mapping 90404 project, an oral history project of Santa Monica’s Pico neighborhood. The intern will also learn how to maintain this oral history project throughout the internship.

The 2022 Getty Marrow Communications and Outreach Intern will support 18SAC artists in residence, exhibitions, and programming by creating and implementing a marketing strategy for June-September 2022. This will include a social media strategy as well as a digital kit for participating artists and community partners. The intern will consider how to acquire the best audience engagement for each artist, project, and event through social media, event calendars, and community partnerships. Through the guidance of 18SAC’s Director of Communications and Outreach, the intern will create a monthly digital report which will have the intern analyze and respond to digital engagement data during the internship. Additionally, the intern will support with event production on an as needed basis.

The 2022 Getty Marrow Communications and Outreach Intern will gain valuable professional experience working closely with internationally recognized artists and seasoned arts administrators in an environment that is organized around mentorship and professional development. 18SAC artists are involved in a wide range of cultural production to which the intern will be exposed, gaining insight into the workings of a small arts non­-profit, including exhibitions and residency programs, social and public practice, performance art, community-­based outreach, and event production. Work hours are 9am­-5pm, Monday-­Friday, including a one-­hour lunch break. Schedule flexibility to accommodate occasional evening or weekend events is expected.
