Agency Details

Agency carries liability insurance.
Agency does not carry worker's compensation insurance.
Agency has a need for additional volunteers.
Agency needs:
We are looking for volunteers and interns to help with public relations, marketing, arts management and other aspects pertaining to the planning and implementing of our nightly programming. We are also looking for interns to help organize and market specific programs, which opens the experience to include first hand arts curatorial and event planning.
Zeitgeist's programming is extremely diverse. We do more programming than any other arts organization in the city without any paid staff or public funds. So it provides students with an endless opportunity to work with artists in all disciplines, genres and nationalities on a completely grassroots level.

Our mission statement is simply "Something for and against everyone!"
