ARTRAGE Intern Program

Applications close: Thursday, 11 August 2022 at 17:00 AWST

As one of the oldest arts organisations in the State (est. 1983) ARTRAGE has developed and presented numerous key cultural events and festivals that enrich and evolve the culture of Western Australia including; FRINGE WORLD Festival, Rooftop Movies and Girls School.

FRINGE WORLD is a massively popular annual festival held annually in Perth and is the third largest Fringe on the planet in a global landscape of more than 400 Fringe festivals.

In this new program, ARTRAGE seeks to offer a range of internships for emerging arts workers to gain entry-level work experience, professional development and mentoring to create opportunities into arts and event management careers.

Internships are focused on providing practical experience working in a not-for-profit arts organisation, fostering networks within the Western Australian arts sector and providing insight of the organisation’s policies, procedures and processes.

Intern placements timing and required hours are flexible and are aimed at tertiary students requiring the placement as a compulsory component of their studies

ARTRAGE will be accepting internship applications in the following area:


Operations, Production & Projects

This role will be shared between three ARTRAGE departments; Operations, Production and Projects and aims to give the individual opportunities to experience event management from multiple perspectives.

In Operations, the candidate will get an overview of bar operations, menu development, contract development and internal staff processes, policies and guides.

The Production department will allow the candidate to gain experience in warehouse inventory, hires and contractor scheduling, procedural and site briefing, design and site file compilation, and production and transport scheduling.

The Projects team will have a focus on an introduction to producing in the arts and will include; venue research, scheduling, developing runsheets, and daily operations.


This internship would be ideal for an emerging worker or student looking for an introduction in real-world management in the arts, festivals, or events. This opportunity would ideally suit someone to work 2 days a week from late August - November (flexible).
