Multimedia Design intern (full time)

Will you be our new creative Multimedia Design Intern?

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and creative intern in Multimedia Design. With knowledge and skills in online communication, multimedia, and graphic design. Available for 6 months starting in September 2022 or earlier. Are you as passionate about light art as we are and would you like to work in an internationally operating organisation? Then we are looking for you!

 

Who are we?

Founded in 2017, Light Art Collection was once started by the Amsterdam Light Festival, which has been developing light festivals since 2012. In these years we have built up the largest collection of light art in the world, by commissioning artists to create works for the festival and adding other pieces to our collection.

We travel around the world to actively engage with our partners such as city marketers, property managers, museums, parks, and festivals, to explore exhibition opportunities for our light artworks to give them a new, international stage. 

With the universal language of light art, we connect, move, and enlighten people all over the world. In our stories, we establish unexpected relationships that change the way both residents and visitors view their surroundings, thus creating a positive impact for the environment. We share our expertise on organising an exhibition that 'blows your mind', we advise on the routes to optimise the visitor experience, and we develop side programmes for young and old. 

We provide the best technical assistance so that the artworks can be shown at their best. We never want to store artworks in dark storage spaces. We want to illuminate the world. Where do we do that? Our works have been exhibited in Athens, Brussels, Hong Kong, London, New York, Riyadh and Adelaide, among other places.

 

Who are you?

You love to make beautiful things. You have an eye for detail. A design must make sense and touch people's hearts. You are not afraid to try things out and find the form that fits best.

  • Knowledge of and experience with multimedia communication

  • You have an excellent command of the Dutch and English languages, both verbally and in writing

  • You are energetic and a real team player. And above all, you are just like us... once enchanted by light art

What you will be doing 

You are part of the Marketing & Communication and Curatorial department. You will mainly work on designing presentations, newsletters, offers, infographics, and contributions to communications to showcase our online content on our own site as well as on our social channels. A versatile role in which you will work closely with the Content Manager and Curator/ Collection Manager.
