International Museums and Collections Award - Birmingham blog

Irene Finkelde, a Masters of Cultural Materials Conservation student at the University of Melbourne and 2016 recipient of the IMaC Award, recently commenced her month-long placement at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom in mid January.

Irene will be working on a range of collection management projects across the University’s wonderful museums and collections and you can follow her Birmingham adventure via her blog.

The IMaC Award provides a unique international exchange opportunity for students between the University of Melbourne and the University of Birmingham. Recipients of the Award take part in a month-long placement working with the collections and museums of the partner university. This placement experience aims to enrich the recipients academic studies and facilitate the development of professional skills within the cultural sector.
