2022 CREATIVE INTERNSHIP
The 2022 Creative Internship Program upskills university students of Asian heritage and anyone with an interest in Asia through creative professional mentorships.
CBMP's internship program is an innovative approach in strengthening social and cultural cohesion and to build resilience within the creative sector. It provides university students and recent graduates with mentorship and knowledge transfer from experienced creatives in Sydney to help them gain work experience by developing their digital skills to tell stories that they are passionate about, and to ultimately showcase their digital portfolio to prospective employers.
The 2022 Internship Program is partly funded by the City of Sydney Matching Grant and CBMP is proud to be part of the intern's career journey to Connect, Exchange and create Job opportunities within the creative industry.
In Oct 2020 and March 2021, CBMP ran two successful pilot Internship Program consisting of 21 students from UTS, UNSW, USYD, Macquarie University and SAE Institute Australia. These students gained work experience and mentoring from industry experts in podcast and network production, as well as journalism and social media. Some have now springboarded into full time roles at SkyNews, The Guardian, Newscorp, ABC, Westpac, Coloursock, Poem Group, community radio stations, contractors for CBMP and more.

What a fun time I had at meetings and how bouncing ideas off a room full of people with different personal and cultural experiences always resulted in really innovative and diverse ideas. I really valued how encouraging CBMP was for interns to contribute in whatever way best suited their interests and offered chances to branch out different kinds of journalism!

My internship at CBMP was one of my first experiences working in a professional media environment. It was an invaluable experience because I got to work alongside some true veterans which allowed me to grow immensely. Not only that, CBMP is one of the few places giving opportunities to Asian Australians in the media space.

My time at Captain Bagrat sharpened my skills as a graphics and visual designer very effectively. As a result, this internship has influenced my career aspirations, making the role of a graphics designer a suitable pathway for myself to pursue in the future.
