Performing Arts Internships in Spain
Build your resume and gain international arts experience, all while being immersed in Spanish culture! In Barcelona, you will walk away with a better understanding of the Spanish language and the dynamics of an arts organisation. In addition, each intern will plan a final project to display his/her contribution to the organisation. We offer internships with varying levels of Spanish proficiency, from beginner to fluent.
Performing Arts Abroad intern abroad participants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to take on a self-driven capstone project to complement their internship experience. This is a unique opportunity for you to complete a project of your own design and choosing with the guidance of a PAA advisor. In the end, you’ll feel a deeper connection to your international internship experience, and you’ll produce something that demonstrates your professional aptitude, what you have learned, and what you have contributed to your host organisation.

We handpick each specific placement based on your interests as captured in your application through a detailed questionnaire, as well as a Skype interview.
