We also host and sponsor a wide variety of cultural events, encompassing a full range of the arts. From painting, to dance, to theater and poetry; providing a community based outlet for people of all ages to express their creativity

Your placement can be focused to meet your professional, academic and personal expectations; however, you must be able to work independently as a responsible member of our small team. You also need to be adaptable as your tasks will vary. You may have the opportunity to experience some days out of the office assisting with any of our many special events we hold annually. To succeed with us you must have the ability to take initiative and work independently; ideally have strong people skills, be organized and ideally creative.
