The ARTS INTERNSHIP is a three-month launching pad into ministry and missions through the arts. These months are split up into a ‘preparation phase’ and an ‘outreach phase’.
The FIRST PHASE is in London and will include activities in and around our base (houses that we live in, and locations where tracks are held) around the city. During the winter internship, this time is 6-8 weeks. The summer internship is shorter, from 4-5 weeks. We work together with staff and students in different TRACKS, including: fashion, music, video & music production, drama, fine arts, photography, creative writing, filmmaking, barista, tattoo & body art, social media, hairdressing, and dance.
The GOALis to enhance our skills, learn how to use them in ministry and outreach, and work together as a team between the tracks toward a combined goal. In past internships we have done collaborative performances, exhibitions, and many local outreaches. We usually ask that interns focus in one track so they have time to really invest and grow in that area. There is a general structure to the internship, but as each group of interns is unique, we try to modify different aspects to better serve each school.
The SECOND PHASE can be from 5-7 weeks, depending on location and availability of hosts. We tend to focus in the UK and Europe for internship outreaches, and it is not limited to just working in the areas of our arts. Many times we do practical work as well, such as talking in churches and youth groups, or serving in the place we are hosted.
The COST of the internship is £2700 (inc. accommodation, food, some materials and some local transportation costs) This doesn’t include outreach tickets, transportation to/in London, or local transport whilst in outreach locations.
If European, you do not need a visa to do a Taboo Arts Internship.
If NOT European, you will need a visa to attend, and should apply a month (or before!) in advance of the school in order to receive your visa.
There is a £100 registration fee that goes towards the overall cost of the school (due with the application, non-refundable).
No DTS is required to participate in an internship.
