The Warp Internship is a paid opportunity aimed at those with some experience with an arts organisation who wish to develop their skills further through training and direct engagement with the sector. It is open to both arts practitioners and non-practitioners alike but a good knowledge and understanding of contemporary visual art is essential.
Among other things, the Intern is responsible for the ongoing operation of Warp’s resource area and the co-ordination of the volunteer workforce at the gallery. They are also involved in the administration of the schemes and compile and send the monthly Warp e-bulletin. If you have:
- a strong desire to pursue a career in the arts are enthusiastic about engaging with the visual arts in Wales.
- knowledge and understanding of contemporary art practice and the Warp/g39 programme.
- good organisation and time management skills, and
- strong IT and administrative skills.
Then this might be a role that suits you.
We run two 6 month internships per year. The Internships are advertised on our website, via our social media pages, our e-bulletin and other information platforms such as Art Cardiff.
Some of our previous interns have recorded discussions with one another about their experiences of the role, how it has fed in to what they did next and there are a couple of tips for people who are thinking of applying. Have a listen to them here.
