The Geoffrey Bawa Trust aims to familiarize students and recent graduates with the operations of its Collections Management and Exhibition Programmes. The Curatorial Internship Programme is designed to provide professional experience to emerging practitioners in the design disciplines, the arts, the humanities, and cultural studies who are interested in exploring editorial and curatorial work in architecture and the arts. Selected candidates will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the Trust's curatorial approach—in particular its collection, exhibitions, editorial projects, and research program. Interns work for a set number of hours per week for a minimum period of three months, and receive a stipend. Areas of focus include; research, archiving, conservation, framing, object handling and storage, exhibition design and fabrication.

Volunteer Programme
Since launching  our Bawa 100 centenary programme, we have had a lot of interest from people who would like to volunteer at Lunuganga Trust. Volunteering is a great way to engage with your community, learn new skills, make friends and professional contacts, and engage more deeply with the legacy of an extraordinary architect and his collections. We accept volunteers aged 16 and over. Volunteers under 18 may be limited as to what volunteer opportunities are available to them. Volunteering is not equivalent to an internship or work experience. To find out more, or express interest, email programmes@gbtrust.net.

Ideal candidates should possess an appreciation for art, a genuine interest in engaging with the public, keen attention to detail, and a positive attitude. Geoffrey Bawa Trust volunteers are proactive, adaptable, and understand that reliability is key.
