The apprentice program provides aspiring arts professionals with a season-long September through July residency at The Lark. Apprentices will join Lark’s tight-knit staff in an arts administration experience supporting visionary playwrights and stories that reflect the vibrancy of our community.
The apprenticeships are designed to serve as a bridge between an educational setting and the professional world by providing firsthand experience in the Lark process, training and experience in arts administration and exposure to the inner workings of an arts organization.
Throughout the season, apprentices will have the opportunity to attend approximately weekly gatherings with their fellow apprentices and an invited industry guest as an opportunity to get to know and learn from a diverse group of people working in the arts. While apprentices must provide for his or her living, housing and transportation expenses they will be paid stipends of $650 per month to help offset those costs.
Apprentices are expected to commit to working September 6, 2016 – July 3, 2017 and to be available to work 30 hours per week with a regular schedule during business hours of Monday-Friday 10am-6pm (with some exceptions as listed).
