the embodiment of our efforts
As they continue their study of music and heritage, our interns are paid and deeply embedded in our function of our organization. To develop a range of essential skills and to prepare them for entry into the cultural workforce, our interns are consulted on decisions ranging from our budget to the development of new programs, and to our development as a nonprofit. Meanwhile, they help oversee tRp’s social media accounts and are trained to facilitate jams, workshops, and conversations about race and equity.
Our first cohort of interns provided input that was essential to TRP’s refinement of our mission, vision and values. These paid internships are currently funded by private donors contributing alongside partners at Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture and Northwest Folklife.
