INITIATIVE

WHO WE ARE

ArtBound Initiative (ABI) is a New York City based agency for individuals seeking professional advancement in the creative fields at an international level. Our mission is to encourage ​global ​dialogues and connections between students and creative professionals.​ The ABI program connects students and recent graduates with key players in the creative industry around the world.

OUR

STORY

ArtBound Initiative is the newest platform of the Berlin Collective, which was founded in 2009 to connect students and 

emerging artists with established artists, galleries, and art

organizations for internship opportunities. Since its founding 7 years ago, the Berlin Collective Internship Program has placed hundreds of interns in positions abroad.

ArtBound Initiative is exclusively dedicated to advancing this international internship program. We offer practical and academically relevant internships that will allow you to become a ​more competitive applicant to​ desirable positions in several creative industries upon completion of the program.

WHAT WE

STAND FOR

ArtBound Initiative was launched to promote cross cultural work opportunities and provide access into creative industries which are very insular. Our desire was to increase the accessibility of major creative hubs among students for whom distance is a barrier. ABI removes those barriers, setting up participants with everything from housing to visas for international students.

 

ArtBound Initiative's goal is to foster an international network of creative professionals who will become key players in their own industries and regions. We support each of our participants for the launch of their career, beyond their internship through the program.
