ANTENNA of Sausalito, California, is interviewing for three unpaid intern positions
for summer 2008. In exchange, Antenna offers free housing in a stunning national
park setting, only ten minutes from San Francisco.
Two interns will work with Artistic Director, Chris Hardman, on The ECOlogical
Calendar for 2010. This will be the sixth edition to be published and distributed
internationally. View this beautiful and educational project by clicking here and

The theater intern will focus primarily on Antenna's artistic performance history
and assist Hardman with interpretation projects. Each intern needs a passion for
the arts and the environment, effective writing and clear communication skills, plus
proficiency in standard computer software (Word, Excel, and internet research).
ECOlogical Research Intern:
Research content, select, write, edit text and data for The ECOlogical Calendar's
wall calendar (four seasonal panels) and annual engagement book. A great
fascination with our environment and the natural world is a must.
ECOlogical Communications Intern:
Assist development of longterm business plans and research marketing for The
ECOlogical Project, communicate with partner organizations, prepare data and
analysis to support mission. Attention to detail, careful follow-through, the
ability to juggle multiple projects and contacts at various stages, and an
articulate phone manner are important.
Coordinate archive project, research history of Antenna as a pioneer in arts
technology, conduct interviews, and develop an interpretive narrative through an
immersive audio soundtrack. Interest in experimental theater and the creative
process, capacity to organize and prioritize, plus networking talents as a liaison
with other non-profits will aid the exploration of new productions leading up to the
30th anniversary of Antenna Theater.
We are looking for three college interns for this summer session (June through
September 2008), who can each work approximately 30 hours a week for eight to twelve
weeks. We are flexible as to the exact dates of every internship, and they may
start individually during the season.
Location! Antenna will provide a furnished house with three private bedrooms in the
Marin Headlands (
http://antennatheater.pmailus.com/pmailweb/ct?d=E9K4jgB7AAEAAA8pAAHW9A ) , just a
ten minute drive to downtown Sausalito and San Francisco. This national park land
is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (

bike and surfer friendly. The offices and studio of Antenna Theater are also
located within the Headlands and overlook the Pacific Ocean at Fort Cronkhite.
Credit? If your college or university permits credit for internships, Antenna will
apply for your school's approval.

ECOlogical Calendar (
