2018 Museums and Collections Projects Program – new projects coming soon
This year the Museums and Collections Projects Program (MCPP) will again be offering students, alumni and other interested individuals the opportunity to work behind the scenes with the University's museums and cultural collections. The projects are carefully designed to provide engaging, specialized experiences that have real value to participants through the acquisition of new vocational skills and the advancing of professional development and networks.
Engaging with a wide range of the University’s museums and collections, the projects offered this year will include cataloguing and research, preventative conservation, public programs, curation and exhibition development. As per previous years, the Program’s projects will add real value to the cultural collections by contributing to their long-term management and ensuring they remain an accessible, relevant and dynamic resource.
For more information on previous projects see the 2017 MCPP newsletter. The 2018 Projects List along with information on how to apply will be available via the Museums and Collections Projects Program website from late February.
