We are currently searching for a motivated Erasmus intern with a fervent interest in art and contemporary art to join our NGO transdisciplinary art space, production studio, and event space, "Das LOT," situated in the historic Ankerbrotfabrik in Vienna, Austria. The Ankerbrotfabrik, a former bread factory transformed into a vibrant cultural hub, stands as a pivotal center for art and culture in Vienna, housing diverse cultural institutions, studios, galleries, and event spaces. Throughout the year, it hosts a myriad of exhibitions, performances, and cultural events.
The chosen intern will engage in a variety of responsibilities revolving around technical support (Light/Sound/Video/Stage), assisting in building/repairing/fixing LOT (Toolwork, Materialwork, Physical Work), event planning, and stage design. This role involves organizing and executing events, concerts, and performances, offering the intern an invaluable chance to work within a dynamic and creative environment alongside professionals in the field. Mentorship, hands-on experience, and guidance will be provided to enhance the intern's skill set.
Candidates applying for this position should have a background in technical support, construction, or related fields, showcasing skills in Light/Sound/Video/Stage management and physical work. A positive attitude, strong multi-tasking abilities, and a keen desire to learn are essential. Written and spoken English proficiency is crucial, along with good organizational and communication skills. Moreover, candidates should demonstrate the capability to collaborate effectively with professionals in the field.
It's important to note that this is an unpaid internship; however, the selected intern will gain valuable hands-on experience, mentorship, and guidance. They will also have the opportunity to network with professionals in the field, refining their skills and enhancing their resumes. The internship duration is flexible and can be discussed with the selected intern. We encourage applications from individuals of all nationalities.
