We encourage our former interns to share their discoveries as they venture forward, building interesting lives.

In these brief interviews, they explore how contributing as a Britt Intern has formed them as individuals.

Cody Stover was a Britt Intern during 2012, focusing on video marketing but let's hear him in his own words:

"Two years following my internship, I look back and realize how incredibly valuable my summer on the Britt Hill was for my development. Starting my internship, I was not sure of my own career plans but after working for ten weeks in the Britt non-profit environment, I began to find my path."

Posted Jun 03, 2014 at 01:24 PM in General, Reviews, Britt Institute, Behind The Scenes

Artist.jpgThe new Britt Festivals' Poster for the 2014 Season was unveiled on Monday, June 2 at a reception on the hill. Jerry Simon, the artist, described his inspiration for the design to an attentive audience.

Simon explained: "It is a Festival of so many interesting kinds of music and is depicted through the musicians in the center of the poster and the musical instruments that break out at the edges. The color is rich and vibrant and the players are passionate about the performance. In the central focus is the banjo, an instrument strongly associated with America's past through folklore and the rural working class. But everyone, in each style, in their own way, is making beautiful music."

The poster is now on sale at the Britt offices in Medford: $35 for a signed poster and $20 for an unsigned version.
