This is a fantastic opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of Tate’s values and approach to Learning with art working our ambitious programme, Tate Exchange in Liverpool.
Across eight months you will gain first-hand experience with our Tate Exchange Co-ordinator within our Learning team. Tate Exchange is a space for everyone to collaborate, test ideas and discover new perspectives on life through art. We deliver an annual programme of activity at Tate Liverpool that explores the different ways art has become active over the last 60 years.
During your internship, you will participate in shaping Tate Exchange as an open, inviting, stimulating and welcoming place where everyone’s ideas can flourish. This will in turn give you a number of formal and informal learning opportunities that will assist you with your future career.
You will work with a range of people from organisations who are Tate Exchange Associates. These range from community groups, artists groups to universities. Tate Liverpool currently has twenty-five Associates who have residencies across the year from one to four weeks. We also utilise Tate Exchange within our ongoing Learning programmes.
To join us, you’ll need to be keen to learn, with an enthusiastic, ‘can-do’ attitude and be able to champion the Tate Exchange values – risk, trust, openness and generosity. As well as being a creative thinker, you’re organised, hard-working and able to adapt to different tasks.
Crucially, you’ll be a team player with great communication skills. It’s essential that you can demonstrate that you will benefit from this opportunity – and explain how it will help you build a better future.
Tate aims to attract and retain talented people from all backgrounds, and these opportunities are for people to learn and develop new skills. We particularly encourage applications from black, ethnic minority, and disabled applicants as these groups are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector
