• Borealis internship!

Borealis is a festival for experimental music that lasts for 5 days each March in Bergen, Norway. We are a small team that grows bigger as the festival approaches and we are now looking for interns who want to gain experience in all aspects of putting on a festival. We’re looking for interns to work closely with the persons in charge of communication, production and organising volunteers.

We are seeking people who are interested in new and experimental music in all its forms, and have a passion for communicating this music to a wider audience. We want people who will take good care of both our artists and our audience. There´s always lots to do at a festival, and you´ll get experience working on things like: press, communications and social media; working on a production from the first idea, through its development to its performance (and the de-rig!); and you will meet artists, volunteers, musicians and composers, and work with logistics and planning. The most important thing is that you want to be part of a team that shapes a fantastic festival in March 2019. Planned startup October/November.

Communication:
We are looking for an intern that can assist our head of communication in the making of the program book and how we present the festival to press and audiences. You must be organised and able to work in both Norwegian and English. Picture editing and simple design skills is appreciated.

Production:
We are looking for an intern who will get a deep insight in the technical and practical part of festival production. You will work closely with our producer and also on smaller projects on your own. Good technical understanding, data skills and practical common sense is required, and you need to be organised and like a challenge.

Volunteer coordination:
We are looking for a positive, engaged, organised person to work closely with our volunteer coordinator. Borealis needs 80 volunteers, and you will help with recruiting, logistics and the planning of parties and fun group activities.

As an intern you commit to 15 hours a week. You will be working alongside our core team, but you will also be asked to run and develop projects on your own, and you’ll gain valuable experience in all aspects of making a festival and cultural work in general. We offer a small stipend to each intern, but can’t contribute to accommodation or travel costs.
