Omaha Performing Arts offers hands-on experience in various fields related to arts administration and event management through our paid internship program.

Internship Requirements:

Internships at Omaha Performing Arts (OPA) are designed to offer hands-on and instructional learning experiences to college and graduate students considering careers within arts management.
