Internships & Volunteering



The Arab Image Foundation (AIF) offers internships for students and recent graduates during the summer and throughout the academic year. Our internships provide the opportunity to learn about the operations of a non-profit organisation and to work in different fields related to the foundation's mission and activities.

Besides gaining invaluable experience at an outstanding cultural institution with a unique collection of vernacular photography, our interns benefit from a rewarding work environment, where they can learn and grow. As part of a highly motivated team, our interns contribute to ongoing projects and gain a close insight into the AIF collection and its programs.

We are looking for interns to work for three to six months on preservation, digitization, documentation, communications, and project coordination.

The internship program, open to both part-time and full-time candidates, is an excellent opportunity for students and recent graduates with an interest in photography, contemporary art, preservation and archival practices. We seek to tailor internships according to applicants' experience and interests.

Volunteers make an invaluable contribution to our preservation work.

Most AIF volunteers are involved in cataloguing and documentation work, which is vital for making the collection accessible to the public. Other activities include assisting with education programs, social media, in the library, and at events.
Volunteers are welcomed into the team and encouraged to learn from our staff and share their experience with us.
