Circus Artspace run an internship programme, 3 - 4 times a year we advertise for one intern post. Interns will work as part of the core Circus team gaining first hand experience in all the activities carried out by an artist-run collective. 


Successful applicants will develop their professional practice through actively taking part in all aspects of our projects including day-to-day running of contemporary art exhibitions & projects, administrative tasks and marketing.  We are looking for reliable candidates based within the Highlands or Moray who can work independently and flexibly over a period of three months.


This is a voluntary position supported by The Highland Society of London; interns will receive a £300 stipend to cover any out of pocket expenses i.e. travel, lunch. This will be paid in £100 instalments at the start of each month.


Interns will take part in weekly team meetings as well as have the opportunity to be part of our monthly peer review Studio Sessions. The internship culminates in a project, new work or an event to be developed by the intern under the mentorship of the Circus collective. See what past interns have done here.
