Additionally, the program includes regular meetings and seminars focused on different methodologies explored in the practice-based work developed at the platform. By observing and collaborating in the different phases and processes developed in Archivo Platform, interns will gain valuable work experience, assess different strategies and abilities in the field of visual culture, gain skills in integrating theory and practice, expand their knowledge in editorial work, build a strong network of contacts, and also develop productive work habits and positive attitudes necessary for good team work and professional success.

Intern 2022 — It was very rich to write the features, to get to know other artists and works that I didn't know before, and also very pleasant to do the internship with Ana Catarina, who is so kind and supports each one's potential.
Intern 2022 — I learnt a lot about writing during this internship. Now I can evaluate my own work and make it stronger. Communication is key, when comes to the publication of any material on the platform and I grew confidence in it.
Intern 2022 — My internship was a great learning experience. I had the opportunity to develop my critical voice and to explore different writing strategies, as well as to discover the very interesting projects in the platform's ten-year archive. I also have a better understanding of what running a research platform entails. Overall, this was a period of exploration and growth and I am definitely more confident in my writing at the end of the internship.
Intern 2021 — I feel privileged to have participated in the Editorial Internship with Archivo. It offers supportive, collaborative and practical insight as to what happens behind the scenes when publishing editorial content in an open and transparent way. I have had the opportunity to expand my perceptions of the archive, photography and contemporary visual culture, to push beyond my comfort zone and gained confidence in my own voice as a result. This is a brilliant inspirational internship!
