Dieu Donné is a leading non-profit cultural institution dedicated to serving established and emerging artists through the collaborative creation of contemporary art using the process of hand papermaking.



Dieu Donné offers a limited number of internship opportunities for students and artists interested in learning aspects of working in a non-profit contemporary artist workspace. The internship program follows the academic calendar with three cycles (Fall: September - December; Spring: January - May; Summer: June - August). Full-semester internships are preferred. Internships are unpaid, however participants earn credit toward studio time at Dieu Donné. University or High School credit can be accommodated for participating institutions.

We are currently seeking additional applications for the Fall 2018 Internship Program

Fall Internship Cycle began on September 4, 2018
