Guerrilla Girls On Tour! 2012 Spring Internships

Guerrilla Girls On Tour! is the only touring theatre company in the United States that creates performances that take a hilarious look at the current state of women in the arts and beyond. Using skits, sketch and improvisation, Guerrilla Girls On Tour! turns sexism, pay equity, body image, the beauty industry and even the dreaded “F” word (feminism) into theatre that both men and women find fearless and funny. Guerrilla Girls On Tour! advocates on behalf of women and artists of color in the performing arts. We create posters, street theatre actions, speak outs and networking events to create gender parity in the performing art world. Guerrilla Girls On Tour! maintains an annual GirlCott and Good News lists highlighting the current state of women in theatre and beyond.

Guerrilla Girls On Tour! is seeking interns for 8 to 12 weeks in the following two areas:

1) General assistance with our rally and speak out tentatively called “Occupy Broadway” scheduled for June of 2012. Duties will include attending all planning meetings and keeping notes, contacting theatre companies for sponsorships, assistance organizing schedule, general correspondence, contacting press and help writing press releases. DATES: March 15 to June 15

2) General office assistance specifically with our mailing list, press kit materials and book proposals. DATES: Feb 15 to April 15

As an anonymous group of activists, Guerrilla Girls On Tour! are all self-starters and volunteers and Internships with GGOT are not paid. However, interns will have access to GGOT and can expect to attend GGOT meetings, actions and participate in our how our organization functions, addresses sexism and creates art. We will work with interns to help them specifically achieve their goals within the scope of their GGOT work.

Interns should be willing to work a flexible schedule of 10 to 15 hours per week. Internship #1 must reside in the New York City area for the duration of the internship and must have access to a computer and Internet. Internship #2 can reside anywhere but must have access to a computer and Internet.

NOTE: Guerrilla Girls On Tour! does not maintain a NYC office. Interns will meet with members of Guerrilla Girls On Tour! on a weekly or bi-weekly basis at various locations in Manhattan. We are looking for candidates who are self-starters and are comfortable working on their own for part of the internship.

College level students who have completed their freshman year who have an interest in activism, art, theatre, marketing, public relations or social media should send a resume and cover letter of interest to
