    2011 Internship Program


    2011 - 04.28

    Artisan’s Asylum is excited to see its 2011 Internship Program begin!

    If you have an interest in arts, crafts, making, hacking, non-profits, or just generally want to help us out, apply to intern at Artisan’s Asylum. Sessions are six weeks long, and in exchange for your hard work, you’ll get free membership and credits to be used towards learning new skills in our classes. The program and your tasks will be catered towards your area(s) of interest, and you will be guided by the capable hands of our Intern Coordinator.

    Intern Coordinator, you say? Why yes. Able-bodied workers need able-bodied management, and that could be you! If you’re comfortable handling supervisory duties, and/or have experience working with adolescents, we are looking for you. In exchange for your time and efforts, you too will receive full-access membership for free.

    The application for both of these positions is available here.

    SomerFUN & May Artists-in-Residence!


    2011 - 04.26

    Through its partnership with Somerville Local First and its FREE community street festival, SomerFUN: A Romp For Independents, Artisan’s Asylum will be offering THREE artists-in-residence positions for the month of May. Selected artists will get to show work at SomerFUN in Union Square on June 11th in an Asylum-only gallery space.

    Because we strive to break down the barriers between artists and their ability to create, the artists we select will  receive:

    • Free, keyed access to our facilities from the date of their acceptance until the festival
    • A small ($100) stipend towards the cost of materials in order to create their works

    In exchange, selected artists will agree to:

    • Utilize Artisan’s Asylum tools and facilities effectively and respectfully
    • Create large-scale, preferably interactive works of art or craft
    • Attend the SomerFUN installation to show their work and engage with the Somerville community

    If you are interested in applying to show work at SomerFUN, please fill out the application and return it by May 1st 2011. We will announce our artist selections no later than May 5th, 2011.

    So what are you waiting for? Fill out the app!
