We hire intern artists at least three times a year.
The Connections We Share
In this partnership program interns will be hired through ArtWorks to create a youth leadership team at the host site, Express Yourself Milwaukee. Interns will be part of a multi-arts cohort made up of professional artists and high school aged youth where together they will research, engage and create individual and group artistic expressions of their learning, practice and understanding of topics such as responsive leadership, community based art and the human connections that guide and strengthen us. Interns will also learn to be facilitators, role models and mentors to youth in other Express Yourself Milwaukee studio programming and monthly Good EATS open mic events. Exhibition of art created (visual art, poetry, music and dance) will take place at the December Good EATS, ArtWorks Annual Meeting, and in the EXYOMKE May 2017 annual performance at the Milwaukee Theater.
Interns will also participate in a four-part career coaching session with ManpowerGroup.
