The 4th installment of the ACT | UJ Conference, #creativeintesctions – an interactive experience, will take place on 16 and 17 March 2016. The conference, to be hosted at the UJ Arts Centre in Johannesburg, takes as its starting point the stimulating nature of the creative sector, which naturally pursues alternative ways of thinking and doing things. Although this can appear disorganised and incoherent to outsiders – and therefore difficult to engage with for those who sit on the edges – this focus on unconventional thinking is ultimately what builds the intrinsic value of the creative industries.
The purpose of the internship is to provide an opportunity for an individual to substantively contribute to the work of, and learn from, the education curator at Wits Art Museum. The intern will be given specific tasks and responsibilities that will revolve around museum education, programming and researching for the school programme. The intern will be challenged to develop their capabilities, create or enhance connections between WAM and school educators, and gain experience. The intern is expected to be flexible and to take part in various activities at the office and sometimes to conduct field research. Knowledge of at least 2 South African languages is essential.

The final bronzes will be full-figure representations in the internationally accepted tradition of realistic sculptural portraiture.
