Internship Program

BCAC launched a non-paid, college-credit internship program during the Spring 2016 semester. The students analyzed the impact the arts have in Broome County in economic development, innovation, and community wellness.

The multi-disciplinary research team from SUNY Broome Community College and Binghamton University concluded that there is tremendous impact to the quality of life for diverse communities by providing accessibility to the arts. Providing avenues for arts programming and resources to disadvantaged communities has also proven to have close ties to improving participants’ mental and physical wellness.

Additionally, skills are often transferrable and can stimulate academic and professional advancement. The BCAC Spring Internship Team also uncovered a report by Forbes that noted investing in advanced technology based businesses yields approximately a 30% return to the community in economic development; however, when investing in the arts there is a 1413% return on investment to economic development for a community. Additional research concluded that the arts influence innovation, entrepreneurship, problem solving, research & development and collaboration which is beneficial for individual professional development and business.

Take a look at Spring 2016 SUNY Broome Intern Shawna Stevenson’s Research Paper “Innovation and the Arts” and Casey Marlow’s article on Casey’s Internship Experience.

During the Summer of 2016, Ella Kang created a video on the “Arts in Broome County”. You can read Ella’s story on her experience creating the video, and see the video she created:

The internship program continues every semester with the intent of providing an applied learning professional experience for college students, with academically based learning outcomes, while expanding arts based research, programs and services for the benefit of Broome County.
