We are looking for Fair Assistants that are interested in participating in our inaugural artist only fair from September 26-30, 2018. The fair will be held at the Brooklyn Expo Center, 72 Noble Street, Brooklyn NY 11222. The fair hours are from 12-8 pm from Wednesday through Sunday.
The Fair Assistant is an important component of the overall fair experience for the artists and all fair attendees. The potential assistants are expected to be polite, helpful and patient while onsite at the venue. All Fair Assistants will be provided a SAF shirt to be worn while on the fair floor.
There are a variety of roles throughout the fair from meeting and greeting the guests to providing direction to specific locations within the fair. Some of the tasks will require direct support for the exhibiting artists or the SAF team but each role will provide valuable insight into the production of a contemporary art fair.
Fair Assistants will be expected to cover 2 shifts of 4 hours each throughout the course of the fair. All assistants will be provided a meal during each onsite shift.
SAF is seeking bright, motivated individuals with excellent communication and writing skills and is detail orientated. This internship opportunity is focused on the production, function, and relevance of an art fair in the art world today.
Interns will garner a full understanding of the mechanisms and production components throughout a variety of tasks during this 3-month internship.
Potential candidates should also have the ability to think creatively and implement new ideas and strategies as well as be willing to learn new skills.
Interns will work directly with the Fair Director on development, community outreach, research, marketing campaigns, data entry with a special emphasis on social media marketing. This internship may require candidates to travel within the 5 boroughs to attend art events and openings. An allowance will be given for all approved travel expenses relating to this internship.
