KARST is offering two 6 month internships, one with an administrative focus and one with a technical focus, to begin Friday 11th May 2018. The internships offer the opportunity to work closely with KARST staff in a supporting role towards exhibitions, projects and events.

KARST internships are a valued, integral element of our Talent Development programme which provides a focused platform for personal and professional development.

The schedule for this position is flexible, but only applicants who are reliable, and who can commit to working with our team for a minimum of 1.5 days per week will be considered. The ideal intern will have strong organisational skills, an interest in both national/regional visual arts, and be able to work flexibly, positively and creatively. Although our internships are unpaid, we do provide subsistence allowance, PAC Home Membership, mentoring and support through personal/professional development will be provided.  Previous KARST interns have since been successful in gaining further creative and paid roles within the arts.

Learning will include practical making skills, use of tools, audio-visual equipment as well as gallery/space maintenance and cleaning.

ADMIN INTERNSHIP: This internship will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to work with the KARST team in administration, marketing, communications, general organisation of the exhibition and projects programme, supporting install and de-install as required, gallery/space maintenance and cleaning.
