The Works to Work Summer Internship, Certification, Education and Scholarship Program features both theoretical and hands-on learning. Participants complete in-class modules while also working to deliver The Works Art & Design Festival. The program is fast paced and focuses on connecting theoretical learning with real-world applications.

The program begins in May and runs throughout the summer with 46 hours of in-class/home-study instruction and over 500 hours of practical work experience. Participants benefit from working with experienced arts presenters as well as world class artists. Since 2001, participants have worked alongside Governor General Award winning artists, international arts educators, and prestigious Canadian art curators.

Several learning strategies are used throughout the program including site lectures, student instruction, cohorts, home study, hands-on demonstrations, professional exposure, guest lectures, and research. Students are provided with a manual that includes a learning guide and assignment modules that must be completed in order to qualify for certification and scholarships.

To encourage ongoing skills development, Works to Work allows participants to return summer after summer to progress from the Assistant to Coordinator to Supervisor level. One position may be certified each summer.

Based in downtown Edmonton, The Works International Visual Arts Society advances the development, awareness and appreciation of art and design in Canada and provides artists, designers and the public a forum for exchanging ideas.

For over 25 years, the Society has presented The Works Art & Design Festival - a unique, free event that attracts artists, designers and patrons from around the globe. Each summer, for 13 days, the best in cutting-edge design, digital art and new media technology are showcased alongside traditional visual art mediums. Thousands of artworks from across Canada and the world are exhibited in galleries transformed from alternative spaces ranging from vacant retail spaces to city parks. The Festival also presents workshops and seminars on the exciting changes and arising issues in art and design.

Edmonton enjoys the Society's programs year-round through its free public gallery, ongoing education programs and The Places program which leaves permanent works of art and design in public places.
