VACANCY: INTERNSHIP CREATIVE PRODUCER
For Amsterdam Fringe Festival we are looking for a Creative Producer Intern.
From April 1 to September 30, approx. 16 hours a week – location Amsterdam
Amsterdam Fringe Festival is looking for an enthusiastic intern to support our production team. You will work closely with the festival’s Creative Producers – together you are responsible for supporting and guiding approximately 50 companies that participate in Amsterdam Fringe Festival every year. Are you interested in theater in the broadest sense of the word? Can you quickly switch between different interests and are you not afraid to pick up the phone? Do you enjoy festival hectic and do you like to work closely with a small, close-knit team? Then this internship is the place for you!
The 16th edition of the Amsterdam Fringe Festival will take place from 2 – 12 September 2021. Eleven days of theater, dance, music, performance and experiment by talented new and undiscovered makers. Fringe is a platform and a refuge for unique artists and their audiences. Talented young makers, inventors, masters of the niche, forgers of hybrids, out-of-boxers, wildcards and the artistically homeless – either by choice or by chance: they invite you to come on a Fringe adventure to roam the fringes of the theatre and the city. From tiny stages and hidden gems to obscure garages and less cultivated areas.
As a Creative Producer intern you support our Creative Producer Artists in guiding and supporting our participants. You help to maintain contact with some of the participants and help you with the matching between participants and locations. You are the point of contact for a group of makers and locations and you monitor the agreements from the festival. During the festival, you jump on your bike every day to visit locations and see performances.
- You are creative, idiosyncratic, you think out-of-the-box and you are innovative.
- You are hands-on and have a “yes we can” attitude.
- You have a good pen and a good command of both the Dutch and English language.
- You like to work for young talent and theater in the broadest sense of the word.
- You have a broad social and cultural interest, you sense the spirit of the times and you are ahead of the trends.
- A nine to five mentality is foreign to you
- You live in Amsterdam or in the immediate vicinity.
- You own a laptop.
