Building Leaders and Creators (BLAC) May 17 – July 16, 2021
BLAC is an eight-week, paid, remote internship for creative thinkers that takes place at independent ad agencies across the country. Your first week is an immersion into agency life—a time for you to learn more about the industry, get inspired by creative thinkers from a variety of industries, and connect with your fellow interns from across the collective. After that, you’ll work within your individual agencies to do real, portfolio-worthy work for real clients. Applications open February 1—we can’t wait to see your video.
The first week of the program is an intensive agency immersion camp, giving you the chance to learn about the ins and outs of the industry, agency life, and skills you’ll use in your own agency during the next seven weeks. No matter your background, this week will help you get up to speed on what day-to-day in an agency is like.
During this week, you’ll learn about agency roles and the process of delivering great creative work. Workshops like Advocating for Ideas—Yours, Mine, and Ours and Pitch as Performance will help you get to know your fellow interns, build community, and help you prepare for the next few weeks. You’ll get to connect with inspiring creative leaders and thinkers from across the industry. And, you and your fellow interns will build an entire creative campaign—for a real client—that you’ll present at the end of the week.
And, that’s just the first five days.
The rest of the internship will be spent at the individual agency where you applied—working on real projects with your fellow interns and the creative pros at each shop. Throughout your internship, you’ll have opportunities to reconnect with the larger group, building a community of creative talent you’ll be able to call on and work with for the rest of your career.
