“Interning at COPPeR allowed me to delve into culture that I did not know existed in El Paso and Teller County. Each staff member invests so much into enriching the community through means of art, music, theater, dance, and more. During my time at COPPeR, I practiced event planning, social media marketing, and created so many valuable connections within the arts community. This non-profit organization is an indispensable cultural resource for the Pikes Peak region.”
Baylee Parks, University of Colorado, Community Outreach Intern, Summer 2018


“The thing that struck me most about my time at the Cultural Office was how broadly they touch the Pikes Peak Region in so many different areas. COPPeR’s efforts to advocate for the arts serve to elevate our entire community. I gained more than professional experience during my summer at COPPeR. Through my fellowship and through COPPeR, I feel a deeper connection to this community, its people, and its culture.”
– Natalie Shishido, Colorado College PIFP Intern, Summer 2016


“Even though I grew up in Colorado Springs, interning with COPPeR opened up a whole new world of art and community I had never been exposed to. I learned skills to incorporate art into all sectors of life and realized its potential in building an integrated, beautiful, and meaningful community. I had the opportunity to work alongside of the most dedicated staffs while learning new social media marketing and communication skills. It was energizing and empowering to be a part of the arts community and an amazing way to spend the summer.”
– Kimi Tanabe, Colorado College PIFP Intern, Summer 2015


“Interning with COPPeR was one of the highlights of my college career. Not only did I make great new friends and become a part of the local arts community, I was able to learn new computer programs, writing styles and organizational communication in the business setting through real hands-on experience.”
– Jessi Manthei, Arts Marketing Intern, Fall 2012
