Epicure is a family owned and community-led music venue, art gallery, restaurant and bar, established in Fairfax, VA in 2010. Epicure offers delicious food, a tasteful beer and wine selection, hot drinks, and an undying love and appreciation for the arts. Throughout the years, we have become home to a growing family of young creatives in the DC area, as well as a warm haven to an incredibly diverse and creative local music scene. We are coming out of a bit of a hibernation moment and working toward an exciting relaunch at the end of March, with an emphasis on further expanding our definition of creativity and centering marginalized voices and identities within our programming.
We are now seeking a super smart, computer/web/social media-savy intern with a positive, friendly attitude and a keen eye for design.
Does all or some of the below statement strike you as true? If so, you may be our person!
You are super duper organized. Your emails are professional and concise, yet set a warm tone of conversation. You upkeep a journal or a blog or otherwise enjoy writing in your own way. Maybe you have an Instagram account or Pinterest as a way to keep track of your visual inspirations. Maybe you are a graphic design student, or mess around on photoshop for fun. You read a lot of books. You are grounded. You take care of your physical/emotional/spiritual well being. You know your history. You are passionate about creativity, human connection and social justice.
