Employment Opportunity at Plug In ICA – Paid Summer Internship

Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art seeks an enthusiastic and professional individual to join our team for the summer as our Education and Public Programming Intern.

This is a paid internship opportunity funded in part by Young Canada Works through the Canadian Museums Association. Candidates must be under 30 years old, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and be returning to school following the internship to meet eligibility requirements outlined by Young Canada Works.

This term position, from June 5 to August 25, 2023; is 40 hours a week, requiring some work in the evenings and on weekends.

There will be two principal areas of focus for the Education and Public Programming Intern: the Summer Institute and the STAGES biennial. Through this work the Education and Public Programming Intern will garner considerable experience in the planning and implementation of large-scale artistic, educational and, more generally, public-facing projects.

For this position, a successful candidate will have an interest in pursuing a career in contemporary art, particularly as an artist, curator, public educator or related practice. The candidate should be undertaking a relevant degree (BA, MA, BFA, MFA) in curatorial studies, visual art, art history, cultural studies, media studies, communications or related fields. The candidate will need to be available to work the occasional evening and weekend.
