Applications for 2018-2019 are now closed. Thank you to all who applied!

The apprentice program provides aspiring arts professionals with a season-long September through June residency at The Lark.  Apprentices will join Lark’s small staff in an arts administration experience supporting visionary playwrights and stories that reflect the vibrancy and complexity of our community. Apprentices do not receive wages, but will receive a monthly stipend of $800 to help offset the costs of being an apprentice.

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 $800 per month to help offset those costs.

Apprentices are expected to commit to working September 5, 2018 - July 3, 2019 and to be available to work 30 hours per week with a regular schedule  Monday-Friday (specific hours are indicated in the descriptions).
