The Dikeou Collection internship program aims to develop, enhance, engender, and establish a forum for artistically minded people in Colorado, the US, and abroad. This independent, unique and hands-on experience will teach interns the day-to-day business of running a private collection, and the basic functions of a public space as it exists in an integrated artistic community. The Dikeou Collection hopes to attract local, national, and international university students. We encourage applicants of all backgrounds and interests, from all fields of study, who have an interest in fine art, art history, architecture, museum studies, design, and beyond to apply.
Initiative is the nexus. We believe that when interns actively seek tasks at which they excel, the experience becomes more valuable. Because time spent at the Dikeou Collection will be currency for future involvement in the art world, we encourage each intern to shape their time at the Collection based on their interests. General responsibilities include opening and closing the Collection, visitor engagement, guiding public tours, archival projects, event management, social media outreach, website updates, and writing contributions. Knowledge of WordPress, basic HTML, and Adobe Creative Suite is a plus.
The internship is slated to last 15 weeks, but is flexible. Applicants must have access, transportation, and housing that allows them to work in Downtown Denver at least 1-3 days a week plus event days.
Credit is offered to applicants seeking to fulfill academic course requirements. The internship is unpaid but there is a possible opportunity for a well-qualified candidate to move into a paid position after demonstrated success as an intern.
To apply, please send a statement of interest (including when you hope to start your internship) and your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
