STPI’s Gallery Internship Programme provides a unique platform for individuals to gain valuable insight into the different facets of gallery programming and operations through supporting the gallery team from the various departments – Communications, Education & Outreach, Registrar and Sales. Depending on current projects and schedules, interns will take on various roles and gallery duties, with tasks ranging from managing day-to-day gallery operations, research and write up of upcoming exhibitions and Visiting Artist Projects, to preparation for exhibition openings and event set ups.
Internship Programme priority will be given to students as STPI works closely with schools as an internship provider to host students from various tertiary institutions such as Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, Singapore Management University and National Technological University.
