We are pleased to announce that applications for the 2015 Venice Internship program are now open. The Venice Internship is a specialized internship program offering a unique opportunity for young Emiratis and long-term residents of the UAE to be part of the National Pavilion United Arab Emirates la Biennale di Venezia during the 56th International Art Exhibition, through a month-long internship in Venice where they act as custodians and docents of the National Pavilion UAE.
This exciting opportunity provides interns a platform to get hands-on experience working alongside curators, artists and exhibition managers to put together and manage a large-scale exhibition at one of the most-acclaimed, non-commercial art events in the world. Not to mention access to a strong network of regional and international industry practitioners.
The National Pavilion UAE is commissioned by the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation, and supported by the UAE Ministry of Culture, Youth and Community Development. Sheikha Hoor bint Sultan Al-Qasimi, President and Director of the Sharjah Art Foundation, has been appointed as the curator for the National Pavilion UAE at the 56th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia
