ArtBound Initiative (ABI) is a global internship program in art and design, connecting students with established artists and arts organizations in New York City, Berlin, and Hong Kong. Through ArtBound Initiative, King’s students can set up an internship (from two months to a full year) in Berlin or Hong Kong with ease. ABI will coordinate all of the logistics, including housing, an internship visa, insurance, an in-country orientation, and more.
ABI offers internships in studio art (for painters, photographers, ceramists, printmakers, and sculptors), communications, marketing, social media, producing, exhibitions and curation, public relations, arts administration, special events, public programs, education, graphic and web design, development, and more. King’s and non-King’s students can obtain King’s credit for specific types of ABI internships based on location and circumstance; please inquire for more information.
