The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences takes pride in its dynamic student placement and internship program offered in close collaboration with our industry partners. We empower our partners to forge meaningful connections with our students who possess a diverse range of transferrable skills, enabling them to tap into their wealth of innovative ideas.
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, a multi-disciplinary arts centre located on Tharawal country in the City of Liverpool, is our valuable placement partner working closely with the School of Humanities. As a renowned cultural facility in south-western Sydney, the Centre produces high-quality exhibitions, performances, festivals, screenings, theatre and events to inspire audiences all year round. Through the inclusion of Master of Cultural Studies interns in their workplace, they can gain advantage of acquiring profound insights into cultural process including popular culture, media, gender, sexuality, globalisation and consumer culture.
We asked Mr Luke Létourneau, Curatorial and Collections Lead at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, about his experience hosting Master of Cultural Studies interns in Semester 2, 2022.
“I was interested in their fresh ideas and perspectives, as well as their contributions in enriching the process of workshopping exhibitions.”
“The intern student worked on reviewing some research packs on passports and integrate references incorporating arts design and history based on our ideas.”
“The intern student shared unique perspectives for our project and actively participating in our team discussions. They also proposed innovative activity ideas allowing exhibition visitors to actively engage with these research ideas.”
“I enjoy working with the University staff. They are professional and easy to work with. I appreciate the initial introduction to the student coordinated by the Student Placement Officer.”
