NB: Jumblies is not offering any new internship opportunities until Fall 2021. Feel free to send messages of interest and CV’s, which we will keep on file.

Jumblies often offers internship/apprenticeship opportunities to artists from all disciplines, traditions, career stages and regions of Canada. Introductory internships usually last from 1 to 6 months, and more advanced internships can extend for a full year or longer. The structure of the internships varies from year to year, project to project and person to person, but typically includes the following elements:

  • taking part in Artfare Essentials, our 6-day foundational workshop;
  • assisting Jumblies-affiliated artists in workshops and activities;
  • participating in ongoing company activities;
  • choosing specific mentors and a primary project focus;
  • taking a role to suit individual learning interests and Jumblies opportunities and needs;
  • taking part in Jumblies seminars and workshops;
  • developing and demonstrating competency in core skill areas;
  • designing, facilitating and evaluating mentored mini-projects;
  • receiving guidance for future plans and aspirations.

At times we have funds and bursaries for internships, and/or can arrange for paid work-learn positions. At other times interns find their own means of support and we can sometimes suggest possible funding sources.

We welcome and accommodate practicum students from a variety of arts and cross-sector programs, as well as high school students seeking placements and community hours. Generally these are volunteer positions; we don’t usually offer pay for placements within accredited programs.
