V&A Internships


3 October 2011 – 2 March 2012
The V&A Department of Theatre and Performance contains the UK’s national collection of
performing arts. The collections are vast, covering all areas of performance – from theatre,
opera and ballet, to music hall and musical theatre, circus, puppetry, and rock and pop.

There are two intakes of interns per year. Each placement has an intake of 6 interns, and runs
for 6 months (October – April; April – October, annually). This allows interns to work together, and means that greater training and support can be given.

Interns provide key support to the work of the department; this includes assisting with
exhibition development and research, web content and publications; there is also the
opportunity to learn about strategic issues such as recording theatre on film, the evolution of
‘Theatreland’ in the West End, the economic contribution of the performing arts, etc. Work is
varied and rewarding, and allows interns to contribute to real projects in one of the UK’s
flagship cultural institutions.
