Arts Administration / Outreach Internship with ARI and CCT

Internship role

Art Relief International and its parent organisation Cultural Canvas Thailand is looking for interns interested in deepening their understanding of arts outreach and expanding their own skills in workshop facilitation and arts administration / management. Interns will gain professional experience while becoming immersed in the vibrant culture of Chiang Mai’s contemporary arts scene.

Through this internship you will gain firsthand experience in international arts outreach and expand your own skills in workshop facilitation and arts administration / management of a small non-profit NGO in a developing country.

The only requirement is an enthusiasm for what we do and an appreciation of the arts as a tool for social change, however interns with marketing, communications, publicity or PR skills or experience are encouraged to apply.
