Arts & Community Internships

We're launching at new Internship Program for young people aged 18 to 25 looking for a career in the creative industries and/or the community development sector.

This program is designed to help you get the skills and experience you need to find work in the areas of the arts and/or community development. Internships are project-based, with each intern supported to develop and deliver an arts and/or community development project. Interns will have access to a project budget to enable them to bring their project idea to life.
