Internships at Canberra International Music Festival

Each autumn, audiences from around Australia travel to the Canberra International Music Festival to enjoy breathtaking music in iconic locations in and around our nation’s capital. Under the leadership of acclaimed musician and Artistic Director, Roland Peelman, CIMF has embraced a visionary musical agenda and presents an exciting fusion of new music with the great works of the past.

The Canberra International Music Festival’s volunteer internship program provides valuable work experience relevant to people interested in a career in the arts industry. Through the Festival’s internship program, selected candidates develop skills under the guidance and supervision of industry professionals and have opportunities to engage with leading international and Australian musicians.
