We offer a variety of internships and do our best to cater to a variety of skills & interest. New to this year is an extended Internship. This experience is unique in that it will be extended beyond our 2 month summer internship and will allow you to gain more experience over an additional 4 months, the opportunity to take on bigger tasks, and get to know our team better.
This paid internship will be part-time January - June. January-May interns can anticipate working 5-10 hours a week, and as-needed during the 15-day June festival. FestivALL is extremely hands-on and requires someone who is energetic and able to work as a team player. If you are looking for a desk job or are unable to lift at least 60lbs (the average weight of a 10x10 tent), this internship is not for you.
- Extended Internship Application due December 20

The Organization: Partnering with over 90 arts and community organizations and hundreds of local, regional, national and international artists each year, FestivALL, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is considered a premiere arts collaborator of Charleston, West Virginia. FestivALL is city-wide, multi-arts festival that serves its mission through its 15-day June FestivALL, Taste-of-ALL, FestivALL Fall, a monthly speaker series called Three Things, a Neighborhood Arts Program, and other programming throughout the year . Each year FestivALL includes over 100 events, and 300 performances and exhibitions from music, theatre, dance, visual art, humanities and more. These events take place in over 40 indoor and outdoor venues, and many events are free or low cost.
The People: FestivALL is a small team of 3! Talented in different arts' sectors, we all care about our city, state, and the importance of arts experiences and opportunities in our communities. In addition, up to 4 interns will join the team from May-June, and 100's of volunteers will help us turn Charleston, WV into a work of art.
The Atmosphere: Our office culture is a blend of professionalism and fun! While we take our jobs seriously, we are a festival after all. And while this job is fun, it's hard work! Whether you are planning for the area's largest art fair, booking the summer's biggest concert, or producing a city-wide foodie event, it’s always fun and rewarding.
The Candidates: Of course we want the best, but that doesn't always mean the smartest, most talented, or top student. FestivALL is seaking someone who is hard working, passionate about the arts and passionate about making our city and state a better place to live and play. If you are looking for a desk job, this internship is not for you.
