Are you passionate about art and communication? Do you want to work on the Nordic region’s leading cultural event and engage a wide audience in contemporary art? CHART is looking for interns, and we hope to hear from you.
The planning for CHART 2023 is already in full swing. We are therefore looking for motivated individuals specializing in communications, visual culture and art history to help realize our sky-high ambitions to engage local and international audiences in the extraordinary world of contemporary art.
Located at Charlottenborg, in the heart of Copenhagen, you will become a part of a small and dedicated team working towards high quality artistic programming in a supportive and social environment. We can offer you a comprehensive internship where you will learn to translate ideas into concrete projects and strengthen your network across the arts and communication industries, both in the Nordics and beyond. The working language is both Danish and English.
We are searching for interns to contribute in the following areas:
You have a flair for social media and an ardent passion for art and culture. Perhaps you are studying in the fields of journalism, communications or media science, eyeing for an opportunity to put theory into praxis. As an intern at CHART’s communication department you would help with the preparation and publication of new editorial and promotional content via newsletters, SoMe and our website, as well as editing press releases and assisting journalists and other media professionals.
You will play an integral role in planning and executing CHART’s art fair, book fair, as well as our extensive programme of talks, performances, guided tours etc. You might be studying creative business management, visual culture or art history. Attention to detail and professionalism is key as you will be engaging with local and international curators, artists, and our partner organisations. Areas of work include assisting with research, managing materials from collaborators as well as planning and executing talks and events during CHART 2023.
You are excited about connecting collectors, galleries, art professionals, and institutions from across the Nordic and international art scenes at CHART. You are motivated to create an intimate and welcoming atmosphere at large-scale events and are happy to accomodate guests’ needs before, during, and after the fair. Strong attention to detail and a problem-solving mentality are essential to have when you engage with VIPs and partners. As an intern on the VIP team, you will assist in all aspects of the VIP strategy, including event planning, communication, and database management, developing an advantageous professional network along the way.
We will compose an individual course that fits your professional competencies and interests. The internship can be planned as part of your spring semester, and we are flexible and respectful of your need to allocate time for exams and other school projects.
We imagine you starting in February 2023 and staying onboard until mid-September to get the full experience of CHART, which takes place 24-27 August 2023.
