Atlanta Contemporary offers unpaid internships to emerging professionals with the opportunity to learn, create, and innovate within the local and national contemporary art scene. Each of our interns are exposed to opportunities that nurture their career and provide hands-on experience in nonprofit management.

Applicants must be above the age of 18 years old looking to gain experience in gallery and museum work. Interns are usually on-site 10-12 hours per week during normal gallery hours, and some special events hours as needed.

There are generally three rounds of internships per year which coincide with the college semester calendar. Intern applicants do not need to be enrolled in school.


Interns support the Welcome Desk through administrative work such as checking in gallery visitors, data management, answering questions, docenting duties, and maintaining a welcoming environment.

Interns also support staff through projects and tasks related to gallery operations and engagement, social media and marketing, special event support, memberships, and more. We require a commitment of at least 10-12 hours per week, usually over 2 days.
