The Adrienne Arsht Center offers students the opportunity to be a part of its creative marketing team through its internship program each semester. Interns are guided through a learning experience as they participate in meetings, review budgets and brainstorm ideas. This summer, the Center’s marketing department welcomes a tremendously diverse and motivated group of young people.

Meet Youssouf Coulibaly, a Visual Effects and Motion Graphics student at the Miami International University of Art and Design. He applied for the internship hoping “to become a professional in Graphic Design” and “to learn the business.” While assisting the E-Commerce Marketing Specialist, Youssouf has been working on tasks such as design of layouts for placement on the internet.

Kristin Farnsworth, an International Finance and Marketing student at the University of Miami, arrived at the Center hoping to blend her interests. “This is an opportunity I saw to involve both my love of the arts and my interest in marketing,” she commented.

As a Marketing student at Florida International University, Zeinab Salmanzadeh came to the Center seeking to work within her field of study. “The most important thing to me is to believe in the product or service that I am marketing,” she says, “like what we do at the Center, where the community benefits from our service.” Since her first day at the Center, Zeinab has been assisting the Promotions Manager in preparing promotions for Tap Dogs, the tap dancing sensation!

Agustin Trotti has been assisting in creating event budgets and working closely with TV stations. A Marketing student at Florida International University, Agustin came to the Center looking for an internship that would not only allow him to develop skills in marketing, but also grant him the opportunity to apply his new skills.

An English student at Florida International University, Anna Xiques was eager to use her writing skills in her internship experience. “My interest in the arts and a desire to work in a creative environment led me to the Center,” she said.  “Working with the Center’s Creative Director on copy writing has helped me gain insight on writing skills that play an important role in marketing.” “I have been given the opportunity, on many occasions, to revise and edit written materials before they are printed. It is an honor to feel like such an important asset to this organization.”.

With a welcoming team and a lineup of promising shows and events, the internship program is proving to be an exciting experience.
