I have been getting a lot of questions about the new Monkeyhouse internships, so I thought I’d take a minute to answer a few of the more popular ones.
WAIT! I just heard about this, your website says applications are due tomorrow and I’m in exams this week! What do I do?!
Thank you so much to everyone who has gotten their applications in already. Due to the amount of excitement we’ve received about these projects, we are going to extend the application deadline to June 25th. Applicants will be notified by July 1st.
I am SO busy! What kind of time commitment are we really talking about and how is this going to fit into my schedule?
Both the C2C Internship and the Blogger In Residence Program consist of about one interview a month.
The C2C Internship will have an orientation/training program at our office at Springstep in Medford, MA during the month of July. After that, you are free to conduct interviews on your own time and are responsible for submitting a minimum of four written interviews over the next five months. You will also have the opportunity to conduct one interview on our C2C television program in Somerville, MA.
The Bloggers In Residence are invited to the orientation gathering in July at our office at Springstep in Medford, MA. After that you are responsible for posting at least once a month. Each Blogger will be given a time frame in each month in which they are responsible for posting. (ex. Jasper posts the first week of each month.) All interviews and posts are written on your own time.
Where do I meet these people I’m supposed to be interviewing?
Monkeyhouse has been conducting interviews with artists all over the globe for many years now and can help you connect to artists that interest you. Many of you already have ties to artists in your communities and we would love to learn a little more about them too!
What if I go to school outside of Boston? Can I still participate?
Yes! Most of the project is conducted via the internet so we want to hear from you, whether you’re studying abroad or just down the turnpike!
