Intern | SPACE on Ryder Farm (Brewster, NY)

About SPACE Internships

The internship at SPACE offers emerging professionals an immersive and impactful experience, equipping participants with useful skills to aid them in their transition into the professional arena. SPACE selects nine to twelve interns (college students, recent college graduates and young adults) each year to live and work on Ryder Farm, an idyllic 222 year old working farm in Brewster, New York. Internships take place over six to eight weeks during SPACE’s residency season, which runs June through October. The SPACE intern corps shares living quarters and communal meals with approximately 200 residents each season at Ryder Farm.

The SPACE Internship engages participants in the artistic, programmatic, culinary and administrative functions of the organization. Additionally, interns contribute to the ongoing care and maintenance of Ryder Farm and its facilities. Interns gain skills and training including office management, hospitality, event execution and meal prep, and also take part in sharings of work-in-development from resident artists, and support research that informs SPACE's marketing and development efforts. Beyond their practical training, interns benefit from the dozens of connections made during their internship, with independent artists, industry leaders and representatives from leading arts and theatre organizations organizations in New York and beyond.

The SPACE Internship is a natural extension of the organization's commitment to personal and professional growth. SPACE interns can expect the benefits of one-on-one mentoring with a SPACE team member and meaningful connections with a variety of professional artists and activists. Additionally, interns will be supported in exploring their own artistic interests while interning at SPACE.

All interns receive housing and three farm-fresh meals daily. SPACE will also assist interns in obtaining college credit when possible. Internships typically last 6 consecutive weeks between June and October (with Sundays off).

All materials must be received by March 1, 2018.
