Machine Project Summer Intern 2011

    A 10-week internship, June 1st to August 10th, 2011.

    Machine Project is looking for a full-time paid intern this summer! (Thanks to the Getty Foundation’s Multicultural Undergraduate Internship Grant.) We’re looking for someone who is interested in event production for a small + feisty non-profit arts and educational space.

    The internship is a full-time (40 hours/week) position, for a consecutive ten-week work period between June and August, 2010.

  • It is a REQUIREMENT that you’re already familiar with Machine and have attended events here in the past. You will also need a car.


    If you’re interested and eligible, email a cover letter and your resume (mandatory) and a link to your recent favorite YouTube clip (optional) to machine@machineproject.com by Saturday April 30th, 2011. Applicants must be available for an interview the first week of May 2011.


    The Getty will support the hiring of an intern who meets these basic parameters:

    Be of African American, Asian, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, or Pacific Islander descent;
    Be a currently enrolled undergraduate. Intern must have completed at least one semester of college by June 2011, and those who will complete their degree by September 1, 2011 are also eligible to apply; (Students who are enrolled in a second BA or BS program are not eligible.)
    Reside or attend college in Los Angeles County; and
    Be a United States citizen or permanent resident.
    Be available all day Monday, June 27th, 2011 to attend a mandatory Getty Intern Arts Summit at the Getty Institute.

    ADDITIONALLY, a Machine Project intern should:

    Be able to work a flexible schedule. Most of our events happen on weekends or nights, so you MUST be available to work on most weekends and nights. In general, your week will often include extended workdays on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and occasional hours the rest of the week.
    Have reliable access to a car. Part of the job will be going on runs for materials & equipment for events, as well as running office-related errands, so access to your own transportation is a must. If you don’t have reliable access to a car, we cannot consider your application, unless you own a fully beta-tested human teleportation device.
    Be responsible and punctual.
    Be comfortable working independently.
    – Enjoy coming to events at Machine (and have come to at least one or two in the past).


    The intern will report to Machine Project in Echo Park on a full-time schedule, and work side-by-side with staff in Machine’s office, gallery, and classroom.


    A workstation with an Apple computer can be provided, though interns are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
