There’s been a lot going on around here lately. Namely, turning our 2-bedroom apartment in to a bottle cap factory, making major life changes (ehh, not for the internet! You’ll just have to keep guessing), and woop! woop! I’m now officially the Events Coordinator at Mayo Street Arts. If you’ve followed me at all you know I talk about this place way too much. It’s close to my house, they like me a lot (and I like them), and there is a HUGE variety of events that happen there from contradances, rock shows, puppet theatre, children’s workshops, artist studios, on and on and on.
In any case, Mayo Street is looking for interns from Sept 1st through December 20th of this year – perfect for the fall semester of any college-going people who want to gain experience in arts and event coordinating. Every day is different at MSA and activities include, but are not limited to, flyering, painting multi-person parade dragons (see above), design work, sewing, painting, repairs, event coordinating, board meetings, community outreach AND MORE. Of course, you’re doing it all for free but most colleges have internship credits that need to be filled, and some even have paid internship programs to help students make money while learning valuable skills in their field.
Aspiring musicians, artists, community leaders, and public relations people are wanted! Big time! Oh, and of course people who might just be interested in helping out a great organization in a great neighborhood who want to volunteer to help us in an exciting time of growth.
