The Metcalf Foundation’s Performing Arts Internships helps organizations create productive entry points into the sector, realize opportunities to foster leadership, and respond to skill shortages in critical areas. The internships provide individuals with more knowledge, better skills, broader work experience, and useful contacts in order to gain meaningful and sustainable employment while making a strong professional contribution to the performing arts.
On March 1, 2022, Metcalf’s Performing Arts Program Director, Michael Trent, provided a brief overview and answered questions about the 2022 Performing Arts Internships Program Guidelines.
This session covered:
- Eligibility and application requirements,
- Key changes in the 2022 guidelines,
- What the Foundation will consider when reviewing applications and the components of successful applications, and
- Common pitfalls of unsuccessful applications that applicants should try to avoid.
This webinar is recommended for organizations considering applying to the Performing Arts Internships upcoming Round 1 April 12, 2022 or Round 2 October 4, 2022 deadlines. New applicants to the program will find the webinar particularly helpful, but it might also be useful for people who have applied, either successfully or unsuccessfully, in the past.
