About the Internship:

Greywood Arts brings artists and our community together to explore the creative process, connect, and grow in a welcoming space where meaningful experiences are made. We do this through artist residencies, community arts projects and by providing support to visiting and local artists. 

Greywood Arts interns work directly with Artistic Director Jessica Bonenfant, founder of Greywood Arts CLG and residency programme. Together you will design and implement a diverse range of arts programming, which is likely to include participatory arts projects, live music events, contemporary dance performances, art and craft workshops, educational programmes, and artist residencies. You will work with Jessica in a collaborative office environment to maintain and develop existing programming, as well as to create new and dynamic ways to engage the local community. 

We are seeking someone who can bring our ethos of a warm welcome to all of their communications with our audiences and who  takes initiative, can work independently, and asks questions.. An interest in arts participation, communities of place and co-creation practices is a plus.  

Interns will be offered transparency about grant application processes, operating within non-profit financial infrastructure with both earned income and public funding streams, the ins and outs of project planning (including allocating costs and managing project budgets,) invoicing, bookkeeping, and the day-to-day administration of a non-profit organisation and maintenance of an  artist-in-residence program.

You will creatively engage in event planning, community programming, and social media management to build skills necessary to work with visual artists, writers, and performers from all over the world to produce exciting public projects.  Interns will gain hands-on training as an integral part of the Greywood Arts team.  

This is an opportunity to work with a community-centered arts organization run by passionate and committed people, share a living space with a rotating schedule of talented resident artists, and be part of something truly special happening in East Cork.
