PARC Employment Opportunity: Student Intern Positions: Colony Coordinator and Assistant

January 29, 2019

The Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre (PARC) is hiring new Student Intern/Assistant Colony Coordinator and Assistant for the Spring of 2019.

If you are a current Mount Allison University student interested in getting some hands-on experience with a not-for-profit arts organization, this is the job for you.

This opportunity will allow you to learn about arts administration, and new play development. Responsibilities involve office work, library work, and clerical work. The intern will help to organize development workshops and get to work with some of Canada’s leading theatre professionals and emerging artists in the discipline. The successful candidate will play an important role in assisting in the organization and coordination of the annual PARC Playwrights’ Colony.

An interest in theatre is an asset, as is previous experience working in a library and/or in an office. Advanced computer skills, the ability to be an IT troubleshooter, and a valid driver’s license will be particularly useful (though license not mandatory).

This is a full-time position for 5 weeks (April 22nd to May 24th).

If interested, please send you resume showing your work experience and a cover letter explaining why you would be a good candidate for this job to Pamela Halstead, Artistic Director, at parcdramaturge@playwrightsatlantic.ca

PARC is a member of the National Network of Playwrights’ Development Centres of Canada and serves playwrights in all four Atlantic Provinces. The annual Playwrights’ Colony takes place in Sackville every Spring, offering a retreat for playwrights and an opportunity for them to work with a dramaturge and a company of actors to develop a new work for the stage.

The deadline to apply is February 1st, 2019.



This position is made possible through the generosity of the J.E.A. Crake Foundation. Other sponsors of Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre include: The Canada Council for the Arts, New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Culture and Heritage, Arts Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture, and Heritage, Mount Allison University, the Craig Foundation, the Town of Sackville and the Access Copyright Foundation.
