Vineyard Arts Project (VAP) is a performing arts residency and wellness retreat space on Martha's Vineyard that furthers the creation of innovative new work in dance and theatre, provides an unparalleled nurturing environment for artists, and reaches a wide audience with “pay what you can” admission to performances.


We do not have any available positions at this time.


We will be looking for summer 2020 interns in winter/spring 2020, so please check back soon!

As a VAP intern, you will gain hands-on experience managing performing arts events, develop research and contribute to organizational goals, and supporting our social media and marketing initiatives.

We encourage undergraduate and very recent graduates (within the last year) to apply. International applicants will be considered but must make their own visa and travel arrangements. Selection for VAP’s internship program is made on the basis of the applicant’s interest and motivation in working for VAP, demonstrated ability to contribute, and commitment to a meaningful work experience. Interest and experience in nonprofits and performing arts are a plus.

Our summer interns are expected to work part-time, 20-30 hours per week, from around Memorial Day through Labor Day on site at VAP. They are expected to work all workshop performances which run from 6-7PM, mostly on Friday and Saturday evenings, and will need to be available from at least 4-8PM on those days. We provide transportation to and from Martha’s Vineyard at the beginning and end of the internship period, and this is a paid position. Our offices are located in Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard and our hours are from 9am to 5pm.


We will be seeking summer 2020 volunteers in spring 2020, so please check back soon!

Our summer volunteers help make our summer performances possible by assisting with the set-up and break-down of the space, greeting and ushering guests, and assisting with ticket and merchandise sales. As our performances run from 6-7pm, we ask that volunteers arrive at 4pm and stay through 8pm on the performance days they are available.

For your participation you will have reserved seating at the performance near the front row, the opportunity to meet the performing group, and assistance with career development for non-profit management and the performing arts. Food will be provided.

If you sign up to assist with an event and are no longer able to attend, we need a minimum 24 hrs notice unless it's an emergency situation.
