Borealis internship in communication or production
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 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 organized and able to work in both Norwegian and English. We’re looking for someone that can start as soon as possible.
We are also looking for an intern to assist our producer and who will get a deep insight in festival production. Here we’re looking for someone that can start in December or early January.
As an intern you commit to 15 hours a week, although we can be flexible for the right people. 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.
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, 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 2017.
For questions contact Managing Director Tine Rude, and to apply send a short email outlining your skills, musical interests and why you want to be part of the Borealis team to firstname.lastname@example.org // 95 90 53 76.
Applications close on the 1st November.
