Ardea Arts

Production and Administrative Assistant

May - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The staff at Ardea was extremely friendly and helpful in helping to cater the internship experience to my personal interests and pursuit. The team was small, but they offered a thoroughly interesting insight into the world of arts administration.

What I wish was different

As the company is small, the interns often took on the roles of "human Swiss army knives". Sometimes this led to interesting tasks involving outreach and publicity, yet other times it simply met running errands, fixing paper jams, and cleaning the office before meetings.


My best advice would be to define your goals before entering an internship. In positions as open as this, it is extremely beneficial to get a good sense of what you would like to get out of the experience and then use the resources available to help realize that goal.
