The Griffith University Art Museum Internship Program provides professional development training in project installation, gallery and curatorial services. The Internship is designed to provide successful applicants with valuable first-hand experience working with a public Art Collection. The core component of the Internship will take place in our Collections store at Griffith University’s Nathan campus, with time also spent in our public gallery at the South Bank campus.
As a real workplace Internship, participants engage in the day to day activities undertaken by Griffith University Art Museum staff. Each placement differs slightly as interns are given the opportunity to contribute to a diverse range of projects and activities. With appropriate supervision and assistance, interns gain valuable workplace experience and develop new skills.
Internship positions are voluntary and suit individuals that are committed to excellence in their chosen field. They require the commitment to work a minimum of one day per week over the course of twelve weeks. Upon successful completion of the Internship, each participant will be offered a Letter of Reference and Certificate of Completion outlining the tasks performed and training completed.
In 2019 up to four Internship placements will be offered across the year, and will run during Griffith University Trimester teaching weeks:
- Trimester 1 – 25 February to 24 May 2019
- Trimester 2 – 8 July to 4 October 2019
- Trimester 3 intensive – 28 October to 6 December 2019
