STUK is looking for an intern production sound 24-25

Internship Production Sound


STUK is looking for a music-minded intern to support the production work of our concerts and sound art project from September 2024 to June 2025. You help with organising events, festivals and residencies, welcome our artists with open arms, and get a wide range of production tasks. A lot of Belgian and international artists are part of the sound programme and festivals such as STUK START, Kermis In De Hel, TakeOff UUR KULTUUR, Hear Here and STUK Eindfeest. The internship is a unique chance to get to know interesting artists and gain experience in the arts sector.

What is STUK?

STUK is a buzzing arts centre in the middle of Leuven, a house for dance, image & sound with international appeal. The building comprises multiple concert and theatre spaces, an exhibition hall, a cinema, a café and much more. From dance performances to concerts, from movies to exhibitions, STUK does it all. We also offer a multitude of festivals and contexts to present Belgian and international artists in the best possible way. Behind the scenes, there are a lot of residencies work and we support the production of new work.

Who are we looking for?

STUK is looking for a music-minded intern to support the production of our concerts and sound art projects from September 2024 to June 2025. The internship is spread out across the entire year, with quiet and busy periods. The season starts with STUK START (19 & 20 September 2024) and the most intense period is Hear Here (24 April to 9 June 2025). During the Christmas and Easter holiday, there is no programmation. No week is the same as the previous one, variety is guaranteed! We look for someone with an affinity for music and (sound) art who likes to roll up their sleeves and get things done. We expect a lot of availability in busy periods, including being free on concert days, doing preparatory work and working late (23:00). The internship is a unique opportunity to get to know interesting artists and gain experience in the cultural sector.

So who are we looking for specifically?

  • You have some affinity for the sound programme of STUK, or at least for music and (sound) art in general
  • You are a good communicator, can work independently and think practically
  • You have (preferably, not necessarily) some experience with organising events, parties or concerts, or have done volunteer work in the cultural or event sector
  • You are familiar with with digital tools like Gmail, Google Drive and social media (again, preferably but not necessarily)
  • You have a good knowledge of English, allowing you to communicate with non-Dutch-speaking artists. Speaking French and Dutch too is a plus.
  • You live in (or have a dorm in) Leuven
  • You have (preferably) a driving licence type B
  • You are available to work regularly on concert days, until late (23:00), and do preparatory work, from September 2024 to June 2025

What will you do?

The tasks are varied

  • You are responsible for the practical organisation of events and are expected to be present on every ‘concert day’. The days of your internship are directly linked to the sound programme, which will take shape in the coming months. Next to that, you will be asked to help with other, preparatory production tasks. The roster is flexible and can be discussed in consultation with the sound programmer.
  • You are the point of contact for artists and technicians: upon arrival, you guide the artists around the venue, backstage, artist kitchen and STUKcafé.
  • You offer practical and logistical support (e.g. making production sheets, keeping track of the guest list, picking up artists at the airport, booking hotels, taking care of hospitality, stage management, …)
  • You make the timetables for audience and artists
  • You follow up the volunteers (ticket scanners, bar, …) who support the events, in consultation with the volunteers coördinator.
