Volunteer To Get Involved!

Volunteering at Materials & Applications is a great opportunity to become more involved in the Los Angeles art and architecture community. You do not have to be an expert to be a valuable team member at M&A! We rely on our volunteers and interns to help sustain our work in many ways, from exhibition installation and production, to openings and event support to general operations assistance. To get involved or to learn more about current and future volunteer opportunities, please sign up for our Volunteer Mailing List below.


Interns will be exposed to the full spectrum of operations at Materials and Applications. In our experience, an internship is only successful if it is tailored to each person's interests and learning objectives, so we offer specific positions in Exhibitions, Development, and Public Programs. You must be a responsible and creative individual interested in art and architectural engagement and are curious about the triumphs and challenges of non-profit work.

We sometimes need candidates with the right skills, attitudes and interests, including: 

  • interest in cultural production in arts and architecture
  • able to work independently and in group settings with strong design, research, writing and organizational sensibilities
  • are eager for new experiences and challenges, regardless of background or skill set

We welcome all applicants but prefer candidates who are pursuing a degree in art, architecture, design, environmental studies and other creative disciplines. All applicants must commit to at least 2 days per week for a minimum of 3 months. We try to offer a small stipend for internships on a project-by-project basis. 

If you are interested in interning with M&A, please email a cover letter and CV to contact [at] materialsandapplications.org
