      Internship Opportunity: Communications Department

      Location: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds

      Fixed Period: 2-3 months

      The Henry Moore Institute is a world-recognised centre for the study of
      sculpture in the heart of Leeds. An award-winning exhibitions venue,
      research centre, library and sculpture archive, the Institute hosts a
      year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences, lectures, research,
      and publications that aim to expand the understanding and scholarship of
      historical and contemporary sculpture. It is a part of The Henry Moore
      Foundation, which was set up by Moore in 1977 to encourage appreciation
      of the visual arts, especially sculpture.

      The Henry Moore Institute is offering a new internship opportunity to
      work within the Communications Department. The Institute invites
      applications for an intern to assist with both Press and Marketing
      activities, as required, over a two to three month period, on a flexible
      part-time basis.

      Duties for the Communications Intern will include:

      Updating the press list

      The Institute has an extensive press list, shared across The Foundation.
      With a focus on broadsheet critics and editors, and arts magazine
      contacts, the chosen candidate will update our existing contacts list,
      and also refresh our listings contacts. This will involve desk research,
      reading relevant publications, and ringing round to obtain and check the
      correct details.

      Organising the press cuttings

      A backlog of press cuttings requires organisation to facilitate
      archiving. The task will involve categorising coverage, in digital and
      hard copy format, and will give the candidate an overview of the variety
      of coverage our exhibitions achieve.

      Making contact with peer organisations

      The candidate will seek to add the Head of Communications to the press
      list of relevant peer organisations across the UK and beyond. In doing
      so the candidate will gain an insight into the ways in which visual art
      events and exhibitions are communicated to the media.

      Blogs outreach

      The candidate will research relevant blogs which are either regionally
      focused, or specialise in arts and culture, and ensure they are
      receiving press information from the Institute. They will then devise
      and run an event aimed specifically at bloggers, either via the Blog
      North forum or independently, as appropriate.

      The Internship is a unique opportunity for anyone wishing to gain
      experience for a future career working in communications, particularly
      in the arts/culture sector.
