The Cal Performances fellowship program provides valuable experience and skill building opportunities to individuals interested in pursuing or enhancing a career in arts administration. Under the direction of a staff mentor, fellows will work both independently and as part of a team, with a concentration in one particular department. Work assignments are developed to allow fellows to contribute in meaningful ways while gaining valuable insight into the various operations of the organization.

Cal Performances seeks applicants who have experience within the performing arts industry and who are seeking to expand and develop their skills for a successful career in arts administration. The fellowship program aims to assist individuals in transitioning from their current professional roles into the world of presenting arts professionals.

The Cal Performances internship program offers students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience and job skills in preparation for a career in arts administration.

During their participation in the program, interns will work with a staff mentor on projects specific to their areas of interest. Because our work is collaborative, the intern will also work with many other staff members and build upon their overall understanding of our operations as well as build upon their professional network.
