CLEVELAND – Nearing completion of seven interns over the past three years, GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi's internship program is gearing up to accept applications for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters.
"Our primary mission at the Museum is to educate our students, and we feel our internship program is a great way to educate young Mississippi professionals," said Emily Havens, Executive Director of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi.
"We encourage applicants from a wide variety of professional fields including: music and entertainment, audio and visual production, education, museum studies, business and administration, marketing and graphic design,” Havens said.
Built and operated by the Cleveland Music Foundation — a non-profit organization developed in 2011 — the 28,000-square-foot GRAMMY Museum Mississippi is housed near the campus of Delta State University, home of the Delta Music Institute's Entertainment Industry Studies program, which features the most unique audio recording facilities in the South. Similar to its sister Museum — the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE — GRAMMY Museum Mississippi is dedicated to exploring the past, present and future of music, and the cultural context from which it emerges, while casting a focused spotlight on the deep musical roots of Mississippi. The Museum features a dynamic combination of public events, educational programming, engaging multimedia presentations, and interactive permanent and traveling exhibits, including a Mississippi-centric area that introduces visitors to the impact of Mississippi's songwriters, producers and musicians on the traditional and modern music landscape.
The deadline to submit applications for the fall internship, which begins in late August, is Aug. 1, 2016. Internship applications can be submitted online at GRAMMYMuseumMS.org. For questions or more information on Museum internships, contact Robin Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
