I am a Student

The Internship in Contemporary Arts offers undergraduate and graduate students in the School for the Contemporary Arts opportunities to develop their skills and expand their knowledge of the local arts community with part-time, typically uncompensated positions that offer meaningful career-related experience within their artistic discipline. These internships provide diverse opportunities to creatively integrate what students have been studying in the classroom through fun and practical learning experiences with local arts organizations while receiving credits towards their degree.


I am a Community Partner

The Internship in Contemporary Arts helps you find part-time, uncompensated support for your arts company or collective through a commitment to engaging and mentoring emerging artists currently studying at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the School in diverse and interdisciplinary practices. Our motivated and talented students come from diverse backgrounds, talents and interests but are unified by a serious commitment to their work. Our students have skills to assist on special projects, events and daily tasks in exchange for a rich hands-on learning experience to help them hone their skills and prepare for their future careers.

Alumni Reflections

"Working with Theatre Replacement has contributed to my future career goals by providing me with invaluable networking opportunities, new applicable skills for a career with a theatre company and insight into the inner workings of a theatre company and production. My time with Theatre Replacement has been a foundational part of my growth as a theatre artist and a true gift. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I would highly recommend an internship at Theatre Replacement or an internship in general to anyone to wishes to pursue the arts outside of or after their BFA." – Danielle Lavallee, Theatre major / Theatre Replacement
