ART & EVENTS INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Venice Family Clinic’s internship program offers valuable work experience in a stimulating artistic and creative environment. Event Interns have access to an impressive roster of more than 300+ emerging and established artists that support Venice Family Clinic’s Art Walk & Auctions. Event Interns will build relationships and engage with local artists and galleries while implementing sales and marketing strategies to meet revenue goals. The annual event, held at Google Los Angeles, is attended by over 6,000 people and raises more than $730,000 for Venice Family Clinic’s patients.

Event Interns experience a diverse range of projects that cover many facets of Venice Family Clinic’s Venice Art Walk & Auctions. This is a fantastic resume builder that provides project management, leadership and critical-thinking techniques while working closely with the team that produces one of the largest community fundraisers on the Westside of Los Angeles.

Internships are ideally suited to candidates with an interest in art, non-profit fundraising, development, events and marketing. No prior experience in these areas is necessary but passion and a knowledge for them is a plus. All internships are part-time and unpaid; however students may be eligible to earn college credit for their internship hours.
