Cultural Counsel : Arts PR & Communications Intern
Cultural Counsel is a consultancy focused on communications, strategic partnerships, and the development of public programming in the worlds of art, design and architecture. Founded in 2015, we were ranked in the Observer’s Top 50 PR firms in America in 2016 and 2017. Clients include an array of institutions, art fairs, galleries, and brands such as New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), Creative Time, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Red Bull Arts New York, and United States Artists.
We are seeking a full-time intern to join our result-oriented, award winning firm. This paid position offers hands-on experience with a fast-growing company dedicated to advancing art, design and architecture to the forefront of the contemporary dialogue.
This role will include assisting the team with daily tasks, planning of events, updating company media reports and archives, as well as interactions with clients, administrative support, errands, and archive management. With this role, you will learn the essentials of our business and become an active participant in a dynamic environment, collaborating with the Cultural Counsel team on both daily tasks and larger creative endeavors.
Our growing team is comprised of communications experts—but none of us come from a traditional PR background. On staff we have artists, journalists, and publishers to help lend perspective and voice to our materials—a unique resource and a fun, creative work environment.
We are looking for creative problem solvers that are quick to react and hyper-organized. Prior knowledge of art history appreciated, not required, but a strong interest in art and culture a must. And, of course, we expect a superior level of written and verbal communication skills as that’s our business!
