Handmade in PA announced that Carrie Nardini, the brains behind Pittsburgh’s I Made It! Market, is looking for an intern interested in gaining experience with all aspects of running an indie craft market for the remainder of 2009, as well as for the Spring 2010 term. I Made It! Market partners with non-profit, arts and community organizations to raise awareness and funds for organizations working to improve our communities AND provides opportunities for local artists and makers to introduce their work in diverse neighborhoods. The market has been crafting it up since May of 2007 and will be busy in 2010. Their goal is to provide opportunities and resources for artists and makers and really dig creating connections. Are you interested in crafts? Have you developed Social Media savvy? Do you like to meet new people and promote small businesses? Then we may be the right internship opportunity for you.
