ABI is the agency to go to if you decide to go into the arts field - local or abroad. Their support prior to your departure will help you throughout your career, not just the internship. The activities they provide to get in touch with the community there are rewarding too. My experience at Klemm's and DECAD are both valuable. I have the chance to work on solid gallery tasks like creating social media content to proposing art happenings for exhibitions. Good luck!

The Artbound team helped me tailor my resume and feel more confident about going out into the work force. It also helped give me contacts and experience in the contemporary art world. The Artbound team helped me feel comfortable when I was in Berlin by setting up my housing and providing information about metro tickets, health insurance, etc. The team set up a couple of events where I got to meet with curators and artists based in Berlin. I also had a lot of free time to either travel or go to events in Berlin on the weekends.

I worked with a company called Bpigs. The people I worked with were really friendly and welcoming. I was able to learn a lot about the administrative side of the contemporary art world as well as the ins and outs of publishing an online magazine. Overall, the Artbound Initiative program provided an exciting and fun learning experience for me this summer, and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in going into a creative field.

How can this program be improved?
More people can join it! I would have loved to have more people from the program to hang out with in abroad.

I've done my internship with Jean Doumanian Productions, which is a production company that produces theaters, movies, and TV series. My internship title was called Script/Coverage Development, and my main responsibilities were to review incoming material (pilots, screenplays, books, etc.) and provide feedback about their commercial potential.

ABI helped me secure the internship I wanted and was very supportive regarding the visa process. This abroad experience is a huge opportunity that'll boost my career and help me get my dream job.

I did an internship at Reflex Group New York and ended up getting hired! It is an international creative agency founded in Paris in 1988. This boutique agency specializes in working for luxury brands. ArtBound Initiative assisted me all the way with getting this internship. The ABI team provided me with a selection of companies that fitted my expectations, helped me in the application process, assisted me during my VISA application process, and also helped me find an accommodation here in New York. They made the whole process easy, and most of all, they made it happen! I am very thankful for their constant and dedicated assistance.

ABI connected me with the perfect internship for me to get started in my career. Working at Con Artist Collective was a great way to be welcomed in the city. I am expanding my network, meeting exceptional artists and people through there. Events hosted by ABI also helped me meet people from around the world ! My favorite excursion so far was going to Dia Beacon on a nice late summer afternoon. Months later, I have still kept in contact with people I have met through the internship and have been immersing myself in the city. Definitely a turning point in my life so far.
