Apply for internship

2016-03-30 06:00

THE Arts & Culture Trust (Act) is calling for applications for a six-month full-time internship funded by the National Lotteries Commission (NLC).

This Johannesburg-based opportunity will see the successful candidate gain hands-on and significant practical experience as they work closely with the Act team on their scholarships programme between May and October.

Act is seeking a young graduate with a keen interest in arts admi-nistration and the performing arts.

The internship will offer training that will build upon the intern’s theoretical knowledge in an applied setting, which will contrast theory with practice.

The internship is designed to refine the writing, verbal and analytical skills of the intern, while fostering a sense of professionalism.

A strong work ethic and industry- best practice will also be imparted on the chosen graduate.

“In addition to gaining valuable relevant experience, the internship is a stepping stone to establishing a career in the arts.

“The networking skills and access to information and knowledge hold great potential for an eager young arts administrator,” says Pieter Jacobs, the chief executive officer of Act.

Throughout this six-month-long opportunity, the intern will be challenged to contemplate matters.

These matters will relate to project implementation, logistics, financial management, marketing, monitoring and evaluation, data collection, analysis and reporting.

These invaluable skills will help separate the intern from their peers, both on paper and in practical application.

The funding from the NLC will ensure the intern is not distracted by the need to make an income outside of the Act offices.

The funding will enable them to fully immerse themselves into the internship and all it has to offer.

Interested graduates can apply at:

The due date for applications is Friday, 8 April.

Act is eagerly awaiting applications.
