Are you a design enthusiast? Have some extra time on your hands? If you have specific skills you can bring to the table, please email us.
Interns help fuel DesignPhiladelphia! Our programming produces a well-rounded internship program, offering students hands-on experience in event coordination and production, graphic and video design, social media promotion, marketing initiatives, public relations outreach, and more. We’re always on the look-out for students with diverse skill-sets.
Interns have the opportunity to engage with designers from Philadelphia and beyond, while helping DesignPhiladelphia support and promote the ability that design has to generate innovation, solve problems, enhance daily life and influence both the perception and economics of the region.
Internships opportunities are available year-round. To find out about current openings, email us.
The annual DesignPhiladelphia Festival happens because of business and individual support. In partnership with the University of the Arts, DesignPhiladelphia is a 501(c)(3) organization. To keep events open to the public and predominately free, DesignPhiladelphia is entirely dependent upon grants, corporate sponsorships, and individual support. Through direct financial contributions, material donations, contacts, services, and volunteerism, we are also able to launch year-round programming. Continued expansion requires additional funding, and we need to raise $125,000 more than last year to achieve our goal. DesignPhiladelphia needs your help. Donate today.
Supporting DesignPhiladelphia positions you as a champion in design excellence. We’ll partner with you to efficiently and effectively achieve mutual partnership goals. We’ll work with you to define your participation in the form of a project, event, or exhibition, and then support you through its completion and evaluation.
