Open internship

Open internship for producer’s assistant!
Interested in the management of an international, high-level theatre festival?

Black and White Theatre Festival is looking for a producer’s assistant for the 2018 festival. The job description includes assisting the producer in marketing, press communication, sponsorship and volunteer coordination, among other things.

During the internship you will get first-hand work experience on all levels of event management, you’ll get to witness exceptional theatre performances and have the opportunity to build new contacts in a theatre network that’s worldwide.

The theatre festival is organized by non-profit association Theatre of Black and White, annually since 2003. The 15th edition of the volunteer-work based festival is set on June 6-10, 2018.
The internship can be a part of your studies, or a work trial agreed with the TE Services. The duration of the internship is 3-6 months, emphasizing on spring 2018 and ending on the festival’s afterwork in June. However, the duration can be resettled if needed.

The Black and White Theatre association has no permanent office, so the work is mainly telecommuting in tight contact with the festival’s producer. During the festival week (June 4-10) we expect the assistant to participate in festival work at Imatra. The internship is unpaid, but the necessary travel costs, food and accommodation during the festival week will be compensated.

We are looking for someone with good coordination skills, commitment to given duties, flexibility, openness and ability to work with people from different cultures and a good knowledge of both finnish and english languages (knowing russian is an advantage). Also any previous experience from theatre work is beneficial. Ability to work under pressure is important, especially during the hectic festival week.
Internship suits well for students of cultural management, for professionals returning to work after a break, or to those making new career choices and needing a trial.
