Andrea Medina, 2022 Summer Intern & Rising Senior at UM- Ann Arbor.

I have been interested in public spaces that integrate art and culture for a while now, and the first part of Culture Corps program guided me to look at public art spaces and organizations more critically. I was also able to experience first hand the work that happens behind the scenes at art and creative organizations.

I did a variety of tasks, including:

  • Writing case statements, proofreading grants, updating the organization’s website, and helping with their newsletters.
  • Updating websites, working in spreadsheets, data collections, organizational platforms like Asana, grant writing and proposal writing.

I'm much more aware of the arts and cultural scene in southeastern Michigan now too. What is great about this internship program is that my organization was very understanding of my time outside of work. I was able to work for my other internship, alongside the Culture Corps internship, because of the flexibility.
