What is the BEF Internship Programme?
Interns will have the opportunity to learn how an art foundation works by working on BEF projects alongside renowned artists and curators. BEF accepts applications for internships, for which students gain academic credit. Getting involved with BEF is an excellent way for students to learn about art, and about the people, organizations and agencies that play a role in shaping the art world. BEF works closely with local and international government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and other academic institutions that may be relevant to the future career interests of students.
BEF accepts applications for internships only for undergraduate. Students are not required to be only students of Fine and Applied art or prior experience in an art foundation, but preference is given to students in that line of career. Applications are welcome from all students who are interested in learning about the foundation and art.
