The University of Newcastle, Australia


Watt Space loves volunteers – and you can gain professional arts administration practice while making a real difference. Our volunteers have gained jobs in galleries, arts centres and cultural organisations, and they have managed festivals and projects.

If you are a current UON student, you can help out at openings, be front of house, help with installation and exhibitions, assist with events, and be involved with all our programs and all our people.

Interns will receive mentorship from the University Art Curator while learning real on-the-job skills in Arts Administration.

The positions can be applied for via Jobs on Campus.
