Frame is looking for programme trainees

Frame is looking for 1–2 trainees to assist in our programme activities starting in February or March 2018. The traineeship is aimed for the students of the CuMMA Master’s Programme (Aalto University) and the Praxis Master’s Programme (University of the Arts) in Helsinki.


Trainee’s assignments include assisting in

  • Frame’s expert visitor programme
  • Frame’s talks programme and other events
  • The selection process for the Finnish Pavilion at the 2019 Venice Biennale
  • Daily office tasks and errands

The selected intern should have a background in studies related to contemporary art (e.g. curating, producing, art history). Acquaintance with the local contemporary art field and organisations is necessary for the candidate as well as ability to work in English. We encourage active, positive and self-imposed attitude and good communication skills. Frame’s activities offer independent and challenging work assignments in a professional, pleasant and interactive work environment. Our office is located in Ratakatu in the centre of Helsinki.

Desirable duration for the traineeship is 3–4 months. Frame covers the costs of 1–2 months of the traineeship according to the university’s guidelines.

Frame is an advocate for Finnish contemporary art. We support international initiatives, facilitate professional partnerships, and promote the visibility of Finnish art abroad through grants, a visitor programme and residencies, seminars and talks, exhibition collaborations and network platforms. Frame is the commissioner of Finland’s presentation at the Venice Biennale.
