Chrysalis + Popsart are looking for two interns.

Are you self-motivated, have a passion for the Arts, and would like to develop your video journalism skills?

The team is looking for emerging arts ambassadors who have proven network skills and communication skills, a strong knowledge of arts and culture, and who are developing their public profile.

You will be trained in the POPSART methodology for media making and will curate a series of interviews that explore the Chrysalis projects and how they impact and transform Place. These interviews will be broadcast on Chrysalis and POPSART platforms.

The opportunity

  • Media training and mentorship valued at $5,000
  • Personal public profile development and promotion
  • Introduction to a network of cross art form creative
  • $500 to get you geared up and further paid opportunities as you develop over the course of the 12-month project

Interviews recorded from May until the launch of the Vernon Ah Kee Mural project in mid-June 2021, then ongoing across the year  as events occur.

Digital Cultural Placemaking

10 Projects + 10 Artists + 10 Businesses.

Chrysalis is leading the development of 10 place-based projects, encompassing a broad arc of the artistic realm: Visual Art, Fashion, Opera, Circus, Music.

Covid19 continues to change how we access arts and culture. If we can’t physically access a “place” how does that place remain relevant without a strong online presence?

Bec Mac through POPSART is revolutionising this Digital Cultural Placemaking by amplifying our city’s artists’ profiles and work, and connecting them to a newly hungry – and captive – digital global audience.

Chrysalis continues their experiment in artist-led stimulus, putting Digital Cultural Placemaking under the microscope. With co-founder Bec Mac a leader in this space, we will build a team of Chrysalis+POPSART interns. Interns will be trained in the POPSART methodology of media making, prior to their curating a series of interviews that explore the Chrysalis projects and how they impact and transform “place”.
