MCA Denver Announces Second Year of Creators Studio Paid Internship for Young Creatives



The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver) announced that applications opened this week for the second Creators Studio, a paid internship and career development program for creative Denverites ages 18-26.


The MCA Denver Creators Studio Program is a collaborative eight-week, cohort-based program that brings together professional artists and young creators to build community and connections to the Denver art scene. All participants will receive creative training, entrepreneurial development training, and mentorship, with additional discipline-specific training in one of two learning tracks: fashion exploration or creative exploration. At the end of the program, participants will publicly present what they learned as a final creative pitch. Participants are paid up to $720 upon completion of the program.


“The Creators Studio internship program helps prepare twenty-four of Denver’s artistically inclined emerging adults to build a career within the arts. Program participants are mentored by both artists and business professionals, allowing them to learn about principles of accounting, marketing, promotion, and pitching, to network with each other and their mentors, and further define their creative practices and career ambitions,” said Christina Chambers, Assistant Director of Programming at MCA Denver.


Creator’s Studio applicants must:


-Be a resident of Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, or Jefferson counties

-Be between the ages of 18-26

-Have a high school diploma/GED (2022 graduating seniors are eligible as this is a summer program.)

-Be interested in exploring fashion or the creative space in general

-Be available for all of the internship dates and final presentation

Applications are due by April 2, 2023 and can be found here. Young creatives at all skill levels are encouraged to apply.

Creators Studio has been made possible through the generous support of Amie Knox and Jim Kelley.
