OBORO accepts internships (generally no more than three participants per year) from students in Fine Arts, Media Arts, Art History or other related programs. Priority is given to candidates who live and study in Montreal, who are fluent in French and English and who possess a basic knowledge and interest in artist-run culture. Applicants are required to seek credit for their internship from their respective university or college. OBORO does not offer renumeration or provide accomodation for internships. Applications for internships are accepted on an ongoing basis. If you are interested in applying for an internship at OBORO, please take note of the following guidelines:
Contents of application
Applicants must supply a letter of intent, a CV, a schedule outlining the start and end dates of the proposed internship along with the required number of hours to be completed and a summary of any stipulations or requirements that must be met on behalf of the university or college.
While OBORO accepts applications on an ongoing basis, candidates must expect a delay of up to 5 weeks before receiving a response to their proposals. OBORO recommends that candidates submit proposals no later than May 1st for internships to be carried out during the Fall term (September - December), October 1st for internships to be carried out during the Winter term (January - April) and February 1st for internships to be carried out during the Summer term (May - August).
Guidelines for letters of intent
Letters of intent should include the following information:
- Name and contact information for your university or college supervisor
- Area of study and pertinence of program of study to the proposed internship
- Candidate's reason for choosing OBORO as host for an internship (How does OBORO's mission and/or programming relate to the candidate's specific interests?)
- Candidate’s availability (days and hours)
- Proposed areas of concentration for internship (some examples include: archiving, administration, coordination, technical support, media production)
Applications are assessed based on their strength, their feasibility and how they relate to OBORO's mandate and programming, as well as on the availability of resources to accompany and train the intern.
