Internships can be a great way for graduates to get the experience and insight into the arts sector necessary to secure employment. The downside is that many of the internships on offer are unpaid and unstructured, meaning graduates risk taking on placements that are at best useless and at worst exploitative. Such unpaid internships also block opportunities for all but the most advantaged who can afford to work for free.
This session will empower you to be able to tell the good from the bad, as well as identify how you can get the most out of any internship you take on. It will also present the Artquest Widening Participation Internship scheme, a model of internship good practice for graduates coming from families where neither parent went to University.
