2018 Internship Program

Applications are now open for a February / March 2018 intake.


The 2018 ArtSHINE Internships are project based and require all applicants to demonstrate how participation in this program will provide meaningful practical experience in their chosen career, discipline, and/or related fields of study.

Internships are open to students currently enrolled in undergraduate, or postgraduate studies at an Australian University in an appropriate field.  Internships are offered for one academic year, commencing in February / March 2018 and concluding in November 2018. This internship program offers real world industry experience for a specified (and limited) period of time as mutually agreed.

Placements available at:

  • CoSydney CoWorking
  • ArtSHINE  galleries
  • ArtSHINE Launch Pad + Accelerator for Creative Industries Professionals

Projects will be conducted under appropriate supervision and may include, but not be limited to:

  • Compile research for a new product, service, or campaign
  • Create a marketing or public relations plan
  • Plan or coordinate events, meetings, or exhibitions
  • Research and write content
  • Create a crowdfunding campaign
  • Design a mobile app

To be successful in your application you will provide a project outline demonstrating a valuable learning opportunity based upon a real world application of your studies. Applications including letters of support from course supervisors or career counsellors will be viewed favourably.

These are unpaid internships. As such they do not replace any existing job role, nor will any Intern be requested to undertake any day to day operational duties that would be otherwise undertaken by a paid employee.

* As an EEO enterprise we encourage applications from a diverse range of applicants. We always welcome applications from people who identify as sexuality, sex and/or gender diverse, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and people differently abled.

We are happy to discuss funding options where financial and material support may be required for an Intern to successfully complete their proposed project with us.
