Nonprofit heritage tourism organization, providing architectural history tours in New York and New England.
REMOTE POSITION, NOT REQUIRED TO WORK FROM MANHATTAN OFFICE
Histoury, a company that provides architectural history tours, is looking for interns (remote, part-time) to help research and coordinate our upcoming tours.
The position is research-based, mainly identifying historic resources in a given community in order to develop thematic architectural tours. The intern will gain exposure to the heritage tourism industry and experience with historical research and interpretation.
Projects involve conducting research to ascertain important information about the buildings, including year of construction, modifications, and the significance of the architect, residents, and events associated with the building. These skills are used regularly in many disciplines of historic preservation and history. The intern will also become familiar with the cultural landscape of regions throughout the northeast, particularly community development and regional architectural movements. The intern will also have the opportunity to interpret the architectural and historical significance of buildings for the tour scripts.
Other assignments include developing tour itinerary, taking into account many variables that go into planning successful educational tours; documenting historical images; and developing mixed media (e.g. booklets and slideshow videos) to be used during tours.
The intern will be required to fulfill 15 hours per week through the end of May. This is an unpaid internship, however, we can work to accommodate academic credit if necessary.
