International Internship program has started
ECADC interns Eda Tuulberg, Tiiu Parbus, Madli Ehasalu
Five art history MA students and young professionals are about to start their 3-4 month long international gallery internships in several European capitals. Eda Tuulberg joined the team of Raster Gallery in Warsaw in June. This fall, Tiiu Parbus will work at Office Baroque in Brussels and Madli Ehasalu at Juliette Jongma Gallery in Amsterdam. In addition, Karolin Ott and Temuri Hvingija, who have already gotten their feet wet running art spaces in London and Tallinn respectively, will take time to gain more international experience. As one of the signature programs of ECADC, along with the Gallerist Master Course, the international internships are a much-needed addition to the academic education of young Estonian art professionals.
