Internship Period: Winter (June - July)
The Perth Festival Employment Diversity Intern will work within the People, Culture and Community team, reporting to our Head of People and Culture, and assisted by our Community Engagement Manager. Perth Festival prides itself on being a Festival ‘for the people’. In order to stay relevant to our community, it’s important for Perth Festival to have a diverse workforce representative of the people it is for. The intern will conduct research and create recommendations on ways to ensure our roles are being promoted to, and are accessible to a broad demographic, supporting an inclusive culture and a diverse workforce.
The Festival was born out of The University of Western Australia’s annual summer school entertainment nights as a ‘festival for the people’ on 3 January 1953.
Since then, Perth Festival has seeded and cultivated decades of cultural growth as the oldest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere. It is Australia’s premier curated multi-arts festival and one of the greatest in the world, known for commissioning major new works, celebrating the unique qualities of Perth and engaging diverse audiences. Every glorious summer the best artists from Western Australia and the world stand shoulder to shoulder in creative unity within the community.
