Apply now for paid internships at Blast Theory

Blast Theory are a Brighton based pioneering artist group creating interactive art to explore social and political questions, placing audience members at the centre of our work.

Since 1991, they’ve been using interactive media to create groundbreaking new forms of performance and interactive art that mixes audiences across the internet, live performance and digital broadcasting.

Led by artists Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, they create interactive art that puts you at the centre of the work. Drawing on popular culture, technology and games, the work often blurs the boundaries between the real and the fictional.

In virtual and physical spaces from pubs, canals and abandoned warehouses to libraries, museums and apps – they go to unexpected places to make our work accessible to everyone.

Paid internships available

The two placements available are:

  1. Monday 24th September – Friday 19th October
  2. Monday 22nd October – Friday 16th November

During each internship you will play a vital role on one of two major Blast Theory productions. This is an opportunity for those embarking on a career in the arts to have first hand experience working with an artist-led organisation and will give you the opportunity to develop skills in some of the following areas:

  • Administration
  • Research
  • Creative Development
  • Testing and preparing AV equipment
  • Film and theatre production
  • Post-production and video editing
  • Marketing and publicity
  • Use of Adobe Creative Suite

They are actively looking for interns that reflect the diversity of the communities they serve. If you can’t afford to take an unpaid internship, this is for you. They particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.
