The Arab Image Foundation (AIF) offers internships for college students and recent graduates during the summer and throughout the academic year. Our internships provide the opportunity to learn about the operations of a nonprofit organization and to work in different fields related to the foundation’s mission and activities. Besides gaining invaluable experience at an outstanding cultural institution with a unique collection of vernacular photography, our interns benefit from a rewarding work environment, where they can learn and grow. As part of a highly motivated team, our interns contribute to ongoing projects and get the chance to get a close insight in the AIF collection, its programs and events.
We are looking for interns to work for three to six months on preservation, documentation, and in the library. Our internships provide the opportunity to learn about the operations of a non-profit organization and to work in different fields related to the foundation’s mission and activities.
The internship program, open to both part-time and full-time candidates, is an excellent opportunity for students and recent graduates with an interest in photography, contemporary art, preservation and archival practices. We seek to tailor internships according to applicants' experience and interests.
