HIAP Internship 2021

HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme is looking for interns for the year 2021!

An internship at HIAP is an opportunity to encounter a broad range of international artists and curators, and to gain insight into the operations of an independent non-profit arts organisation.

The interns are involved in various activities such as:
– preparing the weekly get-togethers between staff and residents
– assisting in organising the HIAP Open Studios and other events
– supporting the resident artists & curators in their projects and hosting the residents during their stay in Helsinki

An internship at HIAP includes also various production, maintenance, administration and communication tasks related to the organisation’s projects and activities in all its three locations, Suomenlinna, Cable Factory and Villa Eläintarha.

The minimum internship time is 3 months, but we prefer a part-time internship of 5-6 months or longer. Financial support for the internship needs to be arranged via a school/university. An alternative option to a funded internship is to arrange a work try-out (työkokeilu) with the Finnish Employment and Economic Development Office (TE-toimisto).

Internship periods:
Spring (approx Jan–June 2021)
Autumn (approx Aug 2021–Jan 2022)

The application deadline is Tuesday, 24 November 2020, 20:00 CET.
