DescriptionWaterFire is first and foremost an evolving artistic expression that tries to greet its visitors with something new each and every time they visit. To accomplish that a lot of thought and effort goes into preparing each event and the performance pieces within them. It is a broad and all-encompassing task to accomplish and WaterFire is currently looking for Intern to help with this effort. This Intern would be involved in all aspects of the event for the purpose of learning not only how a public art organization operates but also how we can collectively communicate our message and vision. They would get experience in marketing, graphic design; grant making, production, artic expression, and merchandising.
