WIAprojects housed at the Centre for Women’s Studies in Education at OISE, University of Toronto provides individualized arts internships* for women to gain work experience for future employment and post-secondary school admission. Interns are paired with a mentor and assigned a project. Each intern can participate as much or as little as she wishes in curation, production, design, publications, marketing, publicity, grant writing and/or publications. Advanced participants may devise a program or project of their own in consultation with WIAprojects’ Director. Interns come to us from art history, women’s studies, arts management programs and also apply as artists, educators and academics.
We still have sites available for 2012-13 for educational & programming interns. If you are applying to the BEd or Masters in Teaching programs come and get valuable teaching experience. We have one slot in elementary (learning through the arts) and two in secondary (design & visual art) education.

There is a $100 administrative fee per academic year for new interns.
