International Internship 2021
July 10, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pm
International Internship SUMMER 2021, Japan
If you are interested in taking part in the Department’s first-ever international internship programme at Hong Kong House, Echigo-Triennale Japan, please join me for an introductory session via Zoom on 9 July, 2020, 11:00am Hong Kong SAR time. Register now!
Held every three-years, the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is one of the largest international outdoor art festivals. The Arts Promotion Office (HK LCSD) hosts the Hong Kong house, a site dedicated to the promotion of Hong Kong artists. The year 2021 marks the beginning of the next cycle of the 8th Triennale, and for the first time, we will be collaborating with Arts Promotion Office (HK) to launch a 3-year internship dedicated to HKU students.
As part of this internship, students will be working with local community and artists for short-term creative projects that reflect their experiences of being part of an international arts biennale held in Echigo-Tsumari. As part of this programme, students who are successful will be given free accommodation and costs towards daily living. Applicants can also apply to the department for travel costs.
If you want to hear more about this programme, what is involved and how to put in an application for this credit-bearing internship, please make sure you turn up to the Zoom meeting. This is an unusual opportunity and as it will be competitive, the department will be taking note of all attendees.
Please note that this zoom meeting will be recorded.
If you have missed the event, or you would like to remind yourself about the details, you may watch the zoom recording here via this link (available until 24 August 2020).
