Internship Opportunities

Our internship program is an opportunity to learn the workings of a nonprofit art space. Interns are regular volunteers with set weekly hours who do everything from help in Midway’s library to paint walls.

Internships are typically offered on a semester basis; interns often earn college credit for their work although you need not be a current student to apply.

If you are interested in being an intern at Midway, please send a PDF cover letter and résumé to [email protected] attn: Megan McCready, Associate Director.
