    Baltan Laboratories is looking for two interns to assist the Baltan team with organizing Age of Wonderland, a program featuring workshops, presentations, network meetings and artist-residencies.

    Age of Wonderland is a program and a research trajectory based on mutual knowledge exchanges between creative practitioners (fellows) within Hivos’ global network and the creative high-tech community in and around Eindhoven, organized at Baltan Laboratories in the Natlab building. The third edition of Age of Wonderland will be addressing the complex issues around big data, challenging creative practitioners to reflect upon the opportunities and possible dangers concerning privacy, security and society in general. For a period of several weeks in May / June and a month in September and October, the selected fellows will be working in Eindhoven and share their research during the Dutch Design Week from 22 – 30 October, 2016.

    Baltan offers a broad practical experience in a professional environment. During your internship you will be assisting the Baltan and Hivos staff and the fellows involved, to help realize a range of ideas and projects. Working activities include production tasks, assisting during and prior to workshops, purchasing tools and materials and setting up the exhibition. Apart from assisting in a practical and logistic manner, we also foresee the opportunity that you help out with the daily operation of the organization. Please refer to the open call that launches early February on the Age of Wonderland website for more in depth information about the Age of Wonderland theme of 2016. 

    Are you an out-going, handy and energetic personality, and do you know your way around the city of Eindhoven? Are you interested in gaining practical working experience in a small and highly active cultural organization, and do you live in, or close by Eindhoven? Do you have a drivers license B and are you fluent in Dutch? We are looking for two motivated interns who are eager to expand their capabilities, and are available for at least 4 days a week from end of April to November. The start of the internship is negotiable. 

    For an internship we pay a small financial endorsement following our international standard regulations.

    Applicants are encouraged to apply before April 4, 2016. Please write a one-page cover letter which specifies (1) your relevant skills and qualifications, (2) your interest in our organization and Age of Wonderland, and (3) your expectations about the internship.
