This cutting-edge internship program runs in tandem with our Summer Institute and is designed to give undergraduate students the opportunity to explore innovative and communal ways to teach art and social justice in a holistic and culturally specific manner. Interns have the opportunity to participate in Summer Institute courses, work with the professional instructors and test run their creative ideas, aspirations and exercises with creative young people eager to make the world a more humane, just and creative place. The Institute for Interns will explore and deepen comprehension of integrated educative practices that use art as a platform for learning, expression and activism.
