Creatability Internship Program - Create NSW
The Createability Internship Program is a strategic partnership between Create NSW and the Department of Family and Community Services and in partnership with arts and disability organisation Accessible Arts. The Createability initiative is an open-ended policy commitment by Create NSW to work across the arts, screen and cultural sectors to grow participation for practitioners with disability.
The Createability Internship Program includes customised training for up to eight participants with disability, facilitated by the leading arts and disability organisation, Accessible Arts, followed by paid internships in major organisations across the arts, screen and cultural sectors. These host organisation partners include the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Festival, Museum of Contemporary Art, Campbelltown Arts Centre, ABC, SBS, Nine, Carriageworks, National Theatre of Paramatta, Animal Logic, Goalpost Pictures, Jungle Entertainment and Art Gallery of NSW. Industry training partners include AFTRS and Bus Stop Films.
The internships will be in a variety of creative and technical areas in the arts and cultural sector and screen production, including marketing, curating, production, front of house, arts administration, public programs, art department, camera and sound, writing, producing, editing and more.
Applications are open to any NSW based person with disability, over the age of 18, who has been actively engaged in or seeking a career opportunity in the arts, screen and culture industry.
Applicants are encouraged from eligible people with all levels of previous experience including those new to the workforce. Applications will be assessed by a panel comprised of Create NSW and Accessible Arts staff. Shortlisted applicants will progress to an interview stage before final selection of the eight interns is made.
Prior to starting their internship, each of the eight individuals will be matched with an organisation. A work program will be developed based on the skills and interest of the participants, alongside the opportunities and requirements of the organisation. Interns without prior experience will be provided with bespoke job-ready training. The host organisations will also be provided with customised disability awareness training facilitated by Accessible Arts.
Applications will close at 5pm on Friday 24 August.
