A museum centered on Art + Education + Social Justice through the lens of Africa + the diaspora


Are you interested in the arts (all disciplines), social justice, education, technology, agriculture, wellness, and or content-making? If so, we would love to hear from you! MoCADA provides equal employment opportunities and a robust, hands-on internship program for those interested in working with us.


MoCADA provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment and prohibits discrimination and harassment of any type without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws.

This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.

Currently, we do not have any positions open. However, we are planning to accept resumes and meet with new candidates for upcoming openings beginning in November 2023.


The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) offers a robust, hands-on internship program working in Brooklyn’s premier museum dedicated to social justice and contemporary art made by creators (who identify as being of African descent) across a variety of disciplines.

During the academic year, MoCADA offers part-time, paid internships (full-time paid internships in the summer), which start at the beginning of each semester until the end of the term. Each internship term requires a minimum commitment of two days a week on site. We accept applications from current juniors and seniors, recent graduates and graduate students.

Interns are placed in departments across the museum where they assist professional staff, interact with the public, conduct research, provide administrative support, and explore social justice, the African diaspora, and art through a contemporary lens. Interns also gain valuable training, skills, and work experience as well as an opportunity to build a network of professional contacts.

If you are interested in exploring the art world, activism, community engagement, and history of the African diaspora, we encourage you to apply.  Send your resume and cover to internships@mocada.org for consideration.
