Become a Festival Intern

At the edge of Australia, at the edge of the world, our lifestyle, our environment, our history provides us with a singularly distinctive outlook on how we celebrate creativity and culture — and embrace the very best that humanity has to offer from anywhere on the planet. Every summer since 1953 Perth Festival bursts into life with music, dance, stories, conversations and laughter. Bright and bold and refreshingly down-to-earth, our Festival is made for locals — but we invite everyone to jump in, and experience art in a different light.

The Festival offers a range of internship opportunities for students to get involved. On placement, students can expect to be involved in meaningful work and also gain valuable learning which will be acquired through workplace experience of the operations.
