Internships

My internship at William Robinson Gallery and QUT Art Museum has been the most important learning I've done in my degree and gave me more confidence in my ability as a creative professional. The team are fantastic to work with and the varied experience I gained in all aspects of gallery work has made entering the workforce much less intimidating!

Undertaking an internship at QUT Art Museum and William Robinson Gallery gave me the opportunity to learn about the multifaceted operations of the galleries through hands on experience. The internship complemented my university studies with first hand insight into professional arts practices. I now feel more confident about navigating the arts industry after I graduate.
