The CULTURECULTURE project is a survey designed to collect data on unpaid internships in Canada's culture sector with the goal of creating a more equitable field for young arts workers.

Thoughts About Art and Community

Help organizations benefit from interns as collaborators and community stakeholders rather than just free labour. Create alternative models of support for young workers. Reward organizations that strive to create a more equitable arts ecosystem. Eliminate trickle-down precarity in the arts.


The research project will collect the experiences of unpaid arts interns. Based on the findings, toolkits, resources and roundtable discussions will provide arts organizations with a set of recommended best practices with regards to young workers in the arts.
