2018 Museums and Collections Projects Program – new projects now available

The 2018 Projects List along with information on how to apply is now available via the Museums and Collections Projects Program (MCPP) website. The MCPP offers 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 contribute tangible benefits to the cultural collections by contributing to their long-term management and ensuring they remain an accessible, relevant and dynamic resource.
