Intern at The Tank NYC
New York, NY 10018
What’s the thing you want to do? We want to help you do that thing!
Our internships allow you to get hands-on, invaluable experience working in the theater. Our interns are a vital part of our operations for the time they work with us, and many end up joining our artistic community soon after their internship is complete. An internship at The Tank provides a 360 degree look at what it takes to run a non-profit arts organization in New York City and opportunities to work with each staff member in their area of expertise. Our interns get experience with marketing, fundraising, production, reviewing submissions, and much more. While we focus each intern’s experience on their particular interests, we do need everybody to be willing and able to dive into a variety of projects.
Starting in 2021, The Tank will be providing a modest stipend of $1,000 to those who are not receiving financial compensation through participation in a university fellowship program.
We ask for 16-20 hours a week, which usually breaks down to two full days in the office AND one required front of house shift per week.
During COVID-19, we have shifted our interns to operate remotely until it is safe and feasible to bring interns back into the physical space on a regular basis. While we anticipate that remote internships will continue for several months, there may be opportunities to work in-person, especially towards April 2021 and after.
Office hours are 10:00am-6:00pm Monday-Friday, and performances happen every day. Internships run January through mid-May (Winter/Spring), mid-May through early September (Summer), and early September through December (Fall).
