TRAINEESHIPS



Art Dubai’s Traineeship Programme was initiated in September 2007. Since then, over 400 students and recent graduates from over 40 nationalities have participated in the scheme, many of whom have gone on to further work opportunities within Art Dubai and its extensive network of partner organisations.


Traineeship opportunities are only available for those 18 years old and over, and based in the UAE.





The Traineeship programme offers intensive three to six month placements, during which trainees gain direct early-career experience in the production of Art Dubai in the lead up to and during the fair.


Traineeships at Art Dubai are aimed at young professionals who have completed internships within the art world, or for those who have experience in other fields and are looking for a career change. This unique programme gives individuals the opportunity to take on areas of responsibility within the arts under the mentorship of senior members of the Art Dubai team.


Please note that the successful completion of a traineeship does not guarantee a permanent placement with Art Dubai or one of the fair’s partner organisations.
