Our interns have gone on to pursue academic, professional and other creative interests in ZA cities and in London, Erbel, Istanbul, Torino, Zurich and beyond.

Our interns are involved in all aspects of our work from pop-up public spaces to community based research to events, and so much more. The first month commences with the reading and review of all our past reports and policy work, followed by a period of questions and discussions.
