The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center accepts both high school and college students for internships in the spring, summer or fall. As an IPCC intern you will learn about the history and culture of the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico and gain valuable experience in a professional and museum setting. Our internships are an especially valuable opportunity for anyone interested in a career in the museum, non-profit, arts, teaching, tourism, marketing or hospitality fields.

This includes preparing artist biographies and responding to general inquiries from the public about artists and their artwork in existing exhibitions.
