This summer, the North Carolina Arts Council (N.C. Arts Council) is working with two interns to cultivate the state’s folklife infrastructure as well as the future of public-sector leadership. The interns will help realize N.C. Arts Council’s folklife programming—by engaging in grant making, field research, financial planning and management, and other activities—while benefiting from related professional development, leadership training and networking opportunities. Through its 33-year-old paid Folklife Internship program, the agency will welcome a graduate student into its folklife program for three months of intensive training and practical, hands-on experiences. Through the new Historically Black Colleges/Universities & Minority Institutions of Higher Education Summer Internship Program of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, of which the arts council is a division, the organization will bring a second intern to its folklife team. This internship will include the same opportunities, but lasts 10 weeks, pays a stipend and is open to undergraduate or graduate students of an HBCU. To learn more about the two internships and the importance of tending to the future of folk traditions and the state arts agency work force, contact Folklife Director Sally Peterson.
