**This program is currently on hiatus.**
The Apprentice Program provides aspiring arts professionals with a season-long residency at The Lark. Apprentices join our small staff in an arts administration experience supporting visionary playwrights and stories that reflect the vibrancy and complexity of our community. Apprentices will be paid an hourly rate of $15, and are expected to work an average of 25 hours per week. Apprentices must provide for their living, housing, relocation, and transportation expenses.
The apprenticeships are designed to serve as a bridge to 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 with a mission that centers Equity, Access, and Inclusion. Throughout the season, apprentices will also have the opportunity to attend weekly "Artist Hours", which are gatherings with their fellow apprentices and an invited industry guest that serve as a chance to get to know and learn from a diverse group of people working in the arts.
Apprentices are expected to commit to being at The Lark through the season, and to be available to work an average of 25 hours per week with a planned schedule Monday-Friday (specific hours are indicated in the descriptions). While apprentices must provide for their living, housing and transportation expenses, they will be paid at the rate of $15/hr. Apprentices can learn more about the expectations and benefits of being an apprentice by reading through the Apprentice expectations document below.
Each apprentice will join a particular department and be given significant and specific responsibilities within that department. Past apprentice positions have included Artistic Programs, Communications, Development, and Theater Management. Read specific descriptions of each position here!
