I am proud to announce that I am officially the Arts Management intern at the Civilians in New York City this summer!
Their mission statement is:
"The Civilians is the center for investigative theater, supporting the development and production of new theater from creative inquiries into the most vital questions of the present. The Civilians expands the scope of American theater and champions innovation by tackling complex and under-explored subjects, enabling artists to enrich their processes through in-depth interaction with their topics, diversifying artistic voices and audiences, and integrating theater with new media. Development often involves community residencies, travel, face-to-face conversations, and extensive research. This high degree of engagement with the public continues into production, inviting the audience to be active participants through ongoing channels of dialogue. The company provides a home for a multi-disciplinary group of artists and partners with regional theater and arts presenters in New York, nationally, and internationally."
I am so proud and honored for this position, and to be working with a company that produces theatre with contemporary relevance. Can’t wait to begin on May 27.
