We are currently accepting submissions from individuals who are interested in a summer apprenticeship with a non-profit arts organization. The apprenticeship period is June – August 2023. Apprentices work 25 hours a week for 10 weeks and are paid $15 an hour.
The application deadline is March 30 at 12 PM EST.
Since the inception of the Arts Workforce Initiative in 2017, the program has placed more than 100 Connecticut individuals interested in exploring a career in the arts, including college students, emerging creatives, formerly incarcerated individuals and military veterans in apprenticeships at non-profit arts organizations (host organizations).
Host organizations provide apprentices with hands-on and engaging learning experiences in arts administration, visual arts, arts presenting/curating, media arts, performing arts, visual arts, arts education and literary arts.
AWI participants have explored various job opportunities in the arts, developed new passions, enhanced their skill set, received professional development support and, for some, long-term employment.
