Area Guides

Applications for the yearly National Pavilion internship programme are closing on Sunday December 3.

The programme is for young residents in the UAE who are interested in arts and architecture. The 30 or so interns who make it through the competitive process will receive training and then spend a month staffing the UAE’s National Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

The internships offers a vital head start for those seeking to make a career in the arts – many of the roughly 150 alumni are now working as artists, designers, architects and curators in the UAE, including at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Art and NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery.
