General Management Intern
GENERAL MANAGEMENT INTERN
The General Management Intern will assist the General Manager in finance and budget management, box office settlements and reconciliations, drafting contracts for artists and productions, company management duties including hospitality arrangements and comp/house seat coordination, general operations, and other administrative tasks as needed. Upcoming productions include the annual CULTUREMART FESTIVAL of works in progress, the world premiere of CASABLANCABOX by Sara and Reid Farrington, the Dream Music Puppetry Program production of EL SILENCIO DEL CARBON, as well as a number of presentations by Mind the Art Entertainment, Girl Be Heard, and Concrete Temple Theatre.
The successful candidate will be a detail-oriented, very well organized self-starter, with excellent writing, communication and computer skills. Advanced knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel is required. Additional technology skills preferred. Must be able to commit to 15-20 hours per week. Preferred six month commitment.
In addition to general management duties, the Fellow may have the opportunity to learn about Development and work on the planning, production and fundraising of the annual Gala in May.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to learn how to produce a show from the ground up, including learning about early stage fundraising, development, budgeting and contracting for works-in-progress as well as productions. It is also a great opportunity to develop skills in a presenting organization that is big enough to support works in a variety of genres (dance, theatre, puppetry, visual art), but small enough to really get involved.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
HERE, New York’s leading artist residency theatre and art center, is seeking a General Management Intern to begin in late January/early February 2017.
HERE builds a community that nurtures career artists as they create innovative hybrid live performance in theatre, dance, music, puppetry, media and visual art. Our artist residencies support the singular vision of the lead artist through commissions, long-term development, and production support. HERE’s programs and performances promote relationships among local, national, and international artists. Our space is a destination for audiences who are passionate about ground-breaking contemporary work and the creative process behind it.
Since 1993, HERE has been one of New York’s most prolific producing organizations, and today, it stands at the forefront of the city’s presenters of daring new hybrid art. HERE supports multidisciplinary work that does not fit into a conventional programming agenda. Our aesthetic represents the independent, the innovative, and the experimental: HERE has developed such acclaimed works as Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues; Basil Twist’s Symphonie Fantastique; Basil Twist and Joey Arias’ Arias with a Twist; Hazelle Goodman’s On Edge; Young Jean Lee’s Songs of The Dragons Flying To Heaven; Trey Lyford & Geoff Sobelle’s all wear bowlers; Faye Driscoll’s 837 Venice Boulevard; Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge and original musical and dance works created and directed by HERE Co-Founder and Artistic Director Kristin Marting.
The New York Times has called HERE “one of the most unusual arts spaces in New York and possibly the model for the cutting-edge arts spaces of tomorrow.” Indeed, HERE has become successful at creating a new kind of arts enterprise—the collaborative multi-arts center. In 24 years, we’ve supported over 14,000 artists and attracted over 950,000 arts patrons. We aim to integrate art into daily life and engage our community’s needs and interests on as many different levels as possible in order to ensure our regular presence in their lives.
HERE supports the work of artists at all stages in their careers through fully-produced works, commissions and subsidized performance and rehearsal space. In addition, HERE’s staff provides marketing, technical and administrative support. All work at HERE is curated based on the strength and uniqueness of the artist’s vision.
Over the last 22 years, HERE and the work presented HERE have garnered 16 OBIE awards, two OBIE grants for artistic achievement, a 2006 Edwin Booth Award (“for Outstanding Contribution to NY Theatre”) from the CUNY Graduate Center, five Drama Desk nominations, two Berrilla Kerr Awards, four NY Innovative Theatre Awards and a Pulitzer Prize nomination. We believe that our multidisciplinary approach is the way to engage the audiences of tomorrow, ensuring a healthy and productive future for the performing arts field at large.
