Our Internship Program offers short-term, targeted opportunities to gain valuable arts industry experience in a hands-on environment among a diversity of peers. This is a unique opportunity to develop new skills alongside a team of experts dedicated to inspiring art across the state.

The principal purpose of our Internship Program is to provide the Intern with hands-on work experience within a structured learning environment. All Regional Arts Victoria Interns undergo a program of observation and exposure across our organisation including Education & Families, Cultural Partnerships, Performing Arts Touring and State-Wide Projects (including Small Town Transformations). A Position Description has been provided as a guide only, offering applicants an insight into the type of experience which will be gained during this internship. Regional Arts Victoria will work closely with the successful applicant to ensure that the Internship Program is of benefit to them.

Our Internship Program has been developed in accordance with the guidelines offered by the Fair Work Ombudsman

For every internship, Regional Arts Victoria makes sure that supervision and support is strong. This means that we are unable to accommodate unsolicited requests for internship placements.


Regional Arts Victoria encourages high school, TAFE and other students with work experience requirements to seek placements in creative organisations across the state. Please see our Members section to find organisations near you.

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to accommodate work experience students in our Melbourne office.


At Regional Arts Victoria we’re committed to creating a workplace that’s as inspiring as the work of our artists across the state. Annual individual and group professional development focuses on leadership, public presentation, writing, negotiation, conflict and complexity, emotional intelligence, body and mindfulness, with mentorships, placements, exchanges, career planning and more. These experiences include our annual Creative Professional Development Retreat, quarterly AllStaff Meeting, and annual performance reviews. The strategic planning cycle involves all staff, and there’s a quarterly Business Plan Check-In to maintain an open culture of evaluation and review. Fortnightly Staff Salons alternate with Kitchen Kabinets, balancing the development of a critical arts vocabulary with exchanges across the breadth of the organisation. Quiet Fridays allow full-time staff to frontload their Monday-to-Thursday so as to devote Fridays to their creative practice, making for a quieter office space to end the week.

Our aim is to offer a career highlight experience for everyone who works with us.
