Phoebe Evans-Clarke, BA Fine Art graduate, completed an Erasmus traineeship soon after her graduation. She worked at an art gallery in Berlin for three months, and speaks here about what she learned from the experience.
Finding my internship
I found my placement through an online platform for hiring internships in creative spaces in Berlin called “BERLIN BLUE CREATIVE”.
I was drawn to Berlin having since visited my friend that year, as she was doing her Erasmus out there. She told me about the many opportunities Berlin had held for her in such a short space of time when compared to other cities – which I too, noticed when doing my research. Berlin seemed cheaper, held a slower pace of life than London and offered worthwhile opportunities in the field of art (like studio grants and part time studio assistant jobs) I had not heard of elsewhere.
After looking at various platforms from different European cities, I chose Berlin, the role being Gallery Assistant at BBA Gallery.
