The Blast Theory intern programme is an opportunity for recent graduates and those embarking on a career in the arts to have first-hand experience of working with an artists company.

Our programme covers a wide range of activity including office administration, project management, database management, touring, archiving, marketing and publicity. At times you will also be required to assist the artists on creative project development and realisation. An important aspect of the intern programme is developing networks and new contacts and our staff are happy to provide advice on career directions and options.

Blast Theory usually work with interns on specific projects in development and give clear areas of responsibility and focus. Interns become a part of the Blast Theory team and our interns should be good at both working in a team and working independently. We also appreciate interns who work hard and who have a keen eye for detail.

The placements are for a minimum of one month and a maximum of three months. A small daily stipend is paid to interns to cover travel and other expenses.
