Have your say: Have you done an unpaid or low-paid arts internship?

Do you feel such placements are exploitative, or are they mutually beneficial?

 

Are you doing, or have you done, an unpaid or low-paid internship for an arts or cultural organisation or business in Ireland? If so, The Irish Times would like to hear from you.
