INTERNS ANNOUNCEMENT|126 Internships-01 copy

126 is delighted to announce an open call for potential interns! Applications are open to all graduates who wish to participate in the 2016 Internship programme. Four interns will be selected for a six month internship running from July to December 2016. The interns will be mentored by the board members and will gain experience in all aspects of running the gallery including: fundraising, funding applications, 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 at 126 in December.

PLEASE NOTE: 126 is a not-for-profit organisation and everyone who works there does so free-of-charge because they’re passionate about the work of 126. As such, this is an unpaid opportunity.


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: contact@126gallery.com.
Please the subject line: “Internship Programme 2016” in your application email.

The deadline for applications is June 1st 2016.  Successful candidates will be notified by Monday 6th of June and the internship will begin on Monday 4th 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 11th – 24th 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.

Please contact or internship coordinators, Cliodhna Timoney or Blaithin Hughes with any inquiries, by emailing: contact@126gallery.com
