NERAM recognises the importance of internships in enabling students to gain valuable workplace experience and develop industry-specific abilities in a chosen area. NERAM values the contribution that interns make to the workplace and provides the opportunity for students to develop personally and professionally in a supportive environment.
Preference is given to students who are currently enrolled in a recognised Australian tertiary educational institution. Students studying the visual arts, arts/museum administration, conservation or an area in which NERAM has an identified expertise will be given priority over other applicants.
NERAM provides a flexible and practical internship program which offers placements in a combination of different areas to provide as broad an experience as possible. Placements can be negotiated in terms of length and of hours worked. Areas will include:
- Visitor experience
- Museum of Printing
- Public Programs
- Curatorial Research
- Registration and Collection Management
Basic accommodation in our on-site Artist-in-Residence area, comprising a separate bedroom, bathroom and living area and basic kitchen requirements, is available free to any NERAM intern during the term of their internship. A small security bond will be required which will be refundable at the end of the internship.
