A Possible New Future for Internships and Fellowships

Free Live Webinar
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
1:00 - 2:15 PM ET



Internships and fellowships serve as pipelines to curatorial careers by offering direct experience and mentorship. With our changing world, and office space and interaction, the ability to bring interns on site is unlikely. Yet there are new opportunities in rethinking traditional models and the “in-building” experience. Join to share and learn about models for long-distance, remote learning.
