Since 2018 we have welcomed interns through the Erasmus Intern Traineeship portal and in 2019 we registered as a host institution for the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program. So far it has been a wonderful experience for everyone involved. We try our best to continue to support our former interns that have now entered the professional sector.
Students or recent graduates that are viable for the Erasmus Intern Traineeship program can stay from two and up to twelve months. You can apply for financial support for travel and subsistence costs with an Erasmus+ grant through your home institution. We do not provide any financial support or accomodation. The applicant needs to have a passion for art, basic knowledge in printmaking and design, and preferably good technical knowledge of design programs such as Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
We have already welcomed a new entrepreneur through the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program. Rather than an internship this takes the form of a collaboration. For an entrepreneur starting out on their own in the creative field it can be difficult to figure out where your ideas fit in and in which context you are supposed to be working. We've witnessed this time and again through years of studying and teaching at art universities.
From the very start of Print & Friends we've sought out new ways of working and operating as artists. We are interested in hosting someone with similar motivations to share perspectives and ideas to help them find their place in this rather complex field of work, with them bringing something new to the table to further our ideas and work.
