Woodland is hiring a Curatorial Research Intern for a 9-week paid internship (30 hours/week). This position is generously funded through the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective.

This position allows Indigenous interns to spend the summer researching Indigenous curatorial practices and engaging in regional arts actions including summer festivals, arts events, community celebrations, theatrical presentations and creation incubators. Interns engage in a variety of professional development activities working with an array of supervised interactions engaging regional not-for-profit groups, arts collectives, municipal partners and First Nations communities. Having Indigenous heritage is strongly encouraged. ACC-CCA is exploring the relationship between the current Indigenous curatorial sector and Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation as all major arts institutions are currently reflecting on this. Our evaluative look at the past 150 years connects Indigenous and settler methodologies to each other to form a better understanding of “our” Canada. Interns will be working along side of established curators to develop ideas, write reflection articles and publish their works professionally to be seen across the whole country.

For full details and job description, please visit: https://www.acc-cca.com/job-posting-curatorial-research-intern/. Send resume and references to arts@woodlandculturalcentre.ca no later than June 20, 2017 at 4PM.
