The ECC-Italy offers an internship program for international students with a background in art or architecture-related disciplines, or an interest in the organisation of cultural projects as well as set-up and handling of exhibitions. We are looking for dynamic, ambitious, young individuals from around the world who are eager to learn and be willing to engage with hands-on work in a fast-paced and professional environment.

As our intern, you will have your own tasks and responsibilities, depending on your field of studies or interests. You will be involved in all aspects related to our large-scale exhibitions, communication with the visitors, supporting our organisational team and participation in educational activities.

During your internship, you will receive support from our team and together we can work towards your ultimate achievements within the internship, and work on what specific skills and knowledge you would like to gain. At the end of the placement, we will discuss and evaluate your progress and together we can figure out the best steps going forward.  

We prefer it if our interns join us for a period of three to six months. However, for those students who followed our academy program, there is also the possibility to do a one or two-month internship. There is no specific starting date for our internships as they can begin for you at any stage of the year. Although we cannot guarantee further employment once your internship has ended, there are always possibilities to join our team. 


We respond to all applicants to inform you of the outcome of your application. If your application is successful we will begin with a Skype interview. Most institutions will give you credit points for completing an internship at the European Cultural Centre. In certain cases, for interns who are unable to financially support themselves, the European Cultural Centre could potentially provide you with a work-related reimbursement.

Internships are at the moment only available for the ECC-Italy in Venice, please click below for more information about the internship program and the application form at the ECC-Italy website.
