Internship Opportunity

Internship Opportunity
Every year, 126 welcomes 6 interns to its Internship programme. Every year the interns will work along 126 board of directors and group curate the final show of the year here at 126, gaining first hand experience in the activities carried out in an artist-run space.

Open Call 2018
126 is delighted to announce an open call to all graduates who wish to participate in the 2018 Internship programme. Six interns will be selected for a six month internship running from July to December 2018. The interns will be mentored by the board members and will gain experience in all aspects of running the gallery including: fundraising, curation, marketing, archiving, web design and arts administration. The internship culminates in a project, exhibition or event to be developed and curated by the interns under the mentorship of the 126 board and to take place in the Hidden Valley gallery in December.

Please include a CV and images of recent work (max. 10) and a letter of interest (max 350 words), which should include your expectations for the project in one Pdf document.

Applications should be emailed to: contactg126@gmail.com Please subject line: “Internship Programme 2018” in your email.

The deadline for applications is July 1st 2018. Successful candidates will be notified by Friday 6th of July and the internship will begin on Sunday 15th of July. The first month of the programme is an induction period to allow the interns to settle into the gallery and into Galway. However the Galway International Arts Festival runs from the 17th – 30th July and is a great opportunity to immediately become involved in the work of the gallery.

Please note that internship at 126 is not a prerequisite for becoming a board member. Applications to become board members from all artists, including recent graduates, are welcomed throughout the year.
