Internships at the Berkeley Art Center will provide you with the experience and training you need to better participate in the Bay Area arts community. While at BAC you will learn all aspects of running a thriving and growing arts organization: from communications and development to programming and exhibition management. 

You do not have to be a matriculating student to apply for an internship, but we do welcome undergrad and graduate   students to apply. We ask for at least a six-month commitment and 8-10 hours a week. This is an unpaid internship. We provide you with the training, support and experience you need to get a paying job at the end of your internship. All levels of experience will be considered, but basic experience on computers, Photoshop and InDesign is preferred.

Each intern will work directly with the Gallery Director to develop and manage a project that both reflects the interns interests and strengths as well as promoting the mission of BAC.

To apply, please email a cover letter describing your interests and computer experience to Ann Trinca at

Berkeley Art Center is an equal opportunity employer and we strongly encourage women, people of color and LGBTQ to apply.
