INTERNSHIP : college students

The program is geared towards Bachelors and Masters’ students who wish to apply theoretical knowledge to real-life situations. The internship is highly competitive, allowing 1-3 students per year to participate in our 3-week annual residency sessions at no cost (usually $500 USD), in exchange of 20 hours of work per week. In addition to engaging creatively at the residency, the intern is involved in all aspects of the center’s management and day-to-day operations (staff coordination, assisting the residency participants, open house installation, marketing, etc). The focus of the internship is assisting the director, invited professionals and community in finding creative solutions to existing environmental, infrastructural, organizational and socio-economic research topics or issues.
