WANTED: Intern for Upcoming London-Based 10 Day Festival of Curiosity and Curiosities


Frighteningly organized interns for upcoming (30 August - 8 September) festival of curiosity and curiosities programmed by Morbid Anatomy, Strange Attractor, and The Coney Island Museum at a number of venues around London.

We are looking for is someone to help us research and contact venues, speakers, and performers; oversee scheduling and logistics; assist with publicity; and write professional emails to individuals and institutions.

The position is, I am sorry to report, unpaid. However, you will be generously rewarded with books, alcohol, food, and full access for yourself and two friends to the festival and other events. Work will be part time (3-6 hours a week) but focussed and occasionally (and inevitably) stressful.

We truly believe that, for the right person with the right interests, this will be a fantastic learning opportunity, and a chance to develop relationships with fascinating and brilliant people as well as remarkable and overlooked venues and institutions.
If interested, please email a short letter about yourself and your suitability for the role to congress[@] by 28 May.

Please feel free to pass this on to any potentially interested parties.
