Make Black History Month about engagement for the month of February.
Omaha Mobile Stage (OMS) is a mobile, community venue for performing artists of all ages, and a teaching venue to help train the next generation of creatives.
The OMS mobile venue moves throughout Omaha neighborhoods from April to October (weather permitting) to provide free community-driven entertainment and arts enrichment.
Interns will receive training, mentorship and paid work experience alongside industry professionals, and acquire skills in a hands-on, outdoor environment.
OMS provides a community-based and equitable pathway to employ performing artists and creatives. OMS also provides skills training, mentoring and paid internships to those advancing their careers in the creative industries.
At the end of each season, OMS Creative Industries Training participants will be prepared for employment in local performing arts facilities; arts and culture organizations; event production, sound, lighting and design companies; and architecture firms.
