Dunedin is an amazing place to live and work, and if you were to ask anyone living here, they’ll tell you that there’s something indescribably special about our city. It’s small enough to feel like you’re part of a community, but big enough to ensure that there’s always something going on. From the great outdoors to arts, culture and education, all within 10 minutes of the city centre. Dunedin has so much to offer, so why not come and feel just how special it is?

The Dunedin Public Art Gallery is offering a 6 to 8 month internship, providing the opportunity for someone with a demonstrated commitment to developing their curatorial practice to join our team.  

The Curatorial Internship is a training position for emerging New Zealand art curators, supported by funding from Creative New Zealand.

Reporting to the Public Programmes and Collection Manager, you will be a member of the Gallery’s Public Programmes and Collection team. You will be working in all areas relating to the development and presentation of exhibitions, public programmes and publications, including working with contemporary art and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery collection.

This internship will require you to work collegially within a team environment. It involves working with artists, writing for exhibitions and publications, developing conservation and art handling knowledge, contributing to exhibition design and layout, interacting with members of the public, and contributing to the development and presentation of visitor programmes.

If you have a positive outlook, a demonstrated interest in exhibition making, and a strong willingness to take on the diverse tasks required of a trainee curator in a public gallery environment, then we look forward to hearing from you.

Applications close Friday 25th January 2019.
