Please subscribe to our newsletter for future internship opportunities, which will be posted on this page.   
Cell’s voluntary and unpaid internship programme offers hands-on work experience in production, management and communications within a small not-for-profit arts organisation. The programme accesses multiple opportunities to engage in work-based practice, mentored by Cell’s small team of staff, which facilitates research into exhibition production and the development of public programmes in an art gallery context. At Cell Project Space the team supports a learning culture and a willingness to share skills, knowledge, and expertise to work towards personal learning goals. Shadowing the team, whilst collaborating with both established and emerging practitioners, offers an insight into the production of new commissions and various exhibition formats, to build and support effective relationships with artists and to create new professional networks. Read more about the programme's learning outcomes.
Open to BA and MA students, in relevant academic or practical fields, the programme offers students integrated hands-on professional practice whilst supporting their study. 
Programme Details
Cell’s internship is a minimum 3 month placement with an option to undertake a further 3 months following a first term appraisal. Interns are required to attend 3 hours per week during gallery public opening hours, regularly, at an agreed time between Thursday to Sunday. During this period, interns are expected to commit to working front of house at the gallery, shadowing the team and learning about programme planning and logistics, being directly involved in research and administration. 
During 14 day installation periods the team would expect a commitment of 2 full days 7 hrs per week from 10am- 6pm, (negotiated in advance by the team to fit schedules and personal commitments) with lunch paid by Cell Project Space. At this point there would be multiple opportunities to engage with practical work-based practice directly alongside artists, curators and technicians as part of a team to realise an exhibition.
