OSLO PILOT

August 19, 2015 – 2:20 pm |

This opportunity comes via MA ACW alumni Claire Feeley, part of the OSLO PILOT team:

OSLO PILOT is looking for dynamic, enthusiastic interns to join their team based in Oslo.

Oslo Pilot is a research-based initiative set up to explore and define the characteristics of a future periodic international art-in-public space event in the city of Oslo. Working closely with artists, art institutions and specialists from other disciplines, Oslo Pilot will communicate through different channels: a project space for exhibitions, archives, encounters and seminars,; a magazine and a new editorial line focused on the poetical text; as well as the production of artworks in public spaces and domains. The two-year project is initiated by the City of Oslo Agency for Cultural Affairs, Norway. The internship programme is available for undergraduate and graduate students. It is required that all interns have the opportunity to combine the internship with their studies, such a receiving academic credit through their school. The internships are not paid.

Oslo Pilot is flexible towards timing and duration of the internship, but we are looking for interns who can be part of our small team for two to six months. We are a small and flexible organisation run by curators Eva Gonzalez-Sancho and Per Gunnar Eeg-Tverbakk, producer, coordinator and project manager. We are located in our projects space in central Oslo.

Interns will take part in all aspects of our work and programme but please note in your application which main responsibility you would prefer:

- Research intern
- Production intern
- Communication intern

Additionally, please indicate the months in which you would be available to work and the number of days per week you could commit.

the candidate should have exceptional organisational and communication skill; demonstrated ability to work on multiple tasks simultaneously and meet tight deadlines; and the ability to take the initiative.We work in English and Norwegian – fluency in one of these languages is required.

Please submit a short CV and cover letter to kontakt@oslopilot.no and we will contact eligible candidates for interviews.
