The intern should have a keen interest in hospitality and be passionate about art, craft and design. He or she will spend most of his or her time interacting with the public in the gallery/shop/café, so French language proficiency is essential. The intern will serve artisanal tea and coffee and speak with international clients about the art and craft works that are on sale. The intern will also assist with the residency programme, helping artists in residence in various ways and participating in the life of La Porte Peinte. An intern who wishes to enter the field of arts administration, management or residency programmes will be able to learn much. The internship will also offer the opportunity to collaborate on creative aspects of running the gallery. An intern who is a designer, artist or maker will be mentored and invited to create work that may be shown and sold in the gallery/shop. The ideal intern will be enthusiastic, engaged, highly organised and autonomous.
