Southern Arts Federation

Program Assistant

As an intern for Southern Arts Federation, I actively participated in the daily activities of one of the five regional arts organizations in the U.S. I worked extensively on the Performing Arts Exchange (September 2006 in Baltimore, MD) in which I vetted performing acts and planned schedules for multiple venues. PAE is the primary marketplace and forum for performing arts presenting and touring – artists and work, ideas, learning and information – in the eastern US. The purpose is to connect artists with audiences by fostering excellence in all aspects of presenting and touring the performing arts.
I also assisted on the Southern Circuit filmmakers touring program by planning travel itineraries, booking hotels and car rentals, preparing high-quality press kits customized for each tour stop, and other marketing and events duties.
