Public Relations Paid Internship

Situated in the Southern Catskills on a 200-acre campus, DH was established on the conviction that it is imperative for artists of all disciplines, backgrounds, and career stages to have time and space for reflection and research. The organization was founded in 2004 by a group of primarily LGBTQ artists, architects, and writers of color. We are an artist-centered interdisciplinary arts organization that fosters an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of contemporary artistic practice. Our mission is guided by the principle that creative and critical voices are important in shaping a just, equitable society.
