We are offering a variety of unpaid internships for the 2020 Perth Festival in line with the details listed on our website: All of our internships are focused on ensuring valuable learning experiences are acquired through exposure to practical workplace examples. We work with a number of different education institutes to ensure specific course criteria is met and support students with collating reports as required.

We will be looking for students that can demonstrate exceptional communication skills, strong computer literacy, creative problem solving skills and of course a passion for their field of study and / or the arts / events industry.
