113 Media Internship

The 113 media internship provides a unique opportunity to develop skills in digital editing and design, audiovisual documentation, social media management, and arts administration, while engaging with an exciting roster of musicians from around the world.  

113, a collection of composers and performers of new music, produces concerts, seminars, and master classes throughout the Twin Cities. Since its inception in 2012, 113 has presented over fifty world premieres and worked with composers and performers such as James Dillon, Brian Ferneyhough, Chaya Czernowin, Julio Estrada, Michael Pisaro, Duo Gelland, Bill Solomon, Collect/Project, Marcelo Rilla, Fonema Consort, and Ensemble Dal Niente, in addition to dozens of local musicians of the highest calibre.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Assistance in the design of concert programs, posters, ads, and printed materials

  • Assistance with website maintenance

  • Assistance with social media, marketing, and PR strategic development

  • Assistance with on-site audiovisual project documentation at 113 events

  • Assistance with editing and archiving documentation of past projects

  • Other duties as needed

Schedule and Location:

Weekly work schedule is flexible, based on applicant’s availability. Number of weekly hours is negotiable. Ability to work during 113 performances is required. Primary work location is negotiable and some telecommuting is possible. Concert venues vary, and are located throughout the Twin Cities in areas that are easily accessible by public transportation and car.

The ideal candidate for this position is driven, self-motivated, able to work independently, willing to follow direction, works well as part of a team, and detail-oriented. The intern will have camera skills; digital editing and design experience; understanding of Google Docs, Google Drive and Gmail; social media know-how; the ability to follow through on large projects; and have their own laptop computer in working condition. Music knowledge is a plus, but is not required.

Candidates are encouraged to apply for internship scholarships, or to enroll in courses that offer course credit through internships. For UMN students, we recommend applying for the CLA Internship Scholarship in the amount of $1500.00 (applications are due September 20, 2017 or January 31, 2018) or to register for course credit through CLA courses ID 1201 Major and Career Exploration, ID 3201 Career Planning, or ID 3208 Internship Reflection. For non-UMN students, we will help research other options. Our grant writing team is ready to assist you. Though 113 cannot provide compensation for interns who do not receive an outside scholarship, interns who perform duties beyond the scope of their assigned responsibilities may be considered for paid contract work on a per-project basis.
