Internship & Fellowships

  InternshipThe application process

We accept volunteers on an ongoing basis, as well as offering formally structured internships. As Volunteers at Golden Tree Gallery you will be involved in greeting visitors, events and programs, and undertake a range of specialised duties, including assisting with the gallery’s archive and research library.

By joining you will connect with artists and the arts community, and participate in public programs such as talks, panel discussions, shows and more as well as the programs designed for the volunteers; artist studio trails, floor talks with exhibiting artists and morning tea events are only a few opportunities and gain a unique experience in the world of art & culture.

Putting in one’s time as an intern is an important career stepping stone — a way to gain key on-the-job skills, experiences, and connections for art-world success.

We encourage internship because that’s how you not only gain professional proficiency but make connections and become a known quantity in the field. Our program aims to support diversity throughout the entire art organization workforce, not just among curators.

If Art is your interest then please sign up as a volunteer, and offer your valuable support to the daily operations of the gallery. The volunteer team assists in a wide variety of roles including (but not limited to) front of the house, gallery duties, and providing assistance with public programs and events.

You will need to demonstrate potential and show a passion for what we do.

We want to provide routes into the arts sector for as many people as possible, so have several ways in which we recruit for internship opportunities. Some internships are recruited through universities that partner with us for placements that are linked to specific courses. We also partner with other local organisations and charities.

Our internship program is open to everyone over the 16th. Every application will be considered equally without regard to disability, gender, nationality, race, religion, and belief, or sexual orientation.

If you have already undertaken an internship in the arts sector in the past, or have already gained similar experience, an internship at Golden Tree Gallery may not be right for you. You might like to explore our current vacancies instead.

The Fellowship Programme is open to professional visual artists in the UK, who are looking to develop as leaders in the cultural sector and for artists working within fine art, applied art, live arts, moving image, sound, and text-based practices, digital and animation, participatory, public, and community arts.
