Besides gaining hands-on experience developing research, and contributing to project production and organizational goals, interns can also participate in both internal and external planning meetings, engage with Fellows and artists involved in our projects, as well as support our public programs.

We encourage graduate students (currently enrolled, or recently graduated) to apply.

Selection for CEC ArtsLink’s internship program is made on the basis of the applicant’s interest in working with CEC ArtsLink, demonstrated ability to contribute to teams, and commitment to a meaningful work experience. Interest and experience in nonprofits, social practice art, or transnational arts exchange is vital.

CEC ArtsLink will list all open internships here.


CEC ArtsLink is seeking an intern to work with our team on developing and activating our Alumni database and network. The Alumni include all current Fellows and the artists, curators, and arts leaders we have worked with transnationally since 1993. As we prepare to launch our public database, The ArtsLink Index, we need an intern who can verify and update data and contact information, liaise with Alumni, and develop and coordinate activation initiatives with the team to connect Alumni and broaden awareness of this resource in the arts and academic communities in the US and the countries in our extensive global network.

The internship will be paid and will work remotely in 2021. The timeframe and duration is flexible, but should start early in 2021 and last for a few months.

To apply, please send your c.v., current status and motivation by email: info(at)cecartslink(dot)org.
