International Museums and Collections Award - Birmingham blog

Clare Fuery-Jones, a third year Bachelor of Arts student majoring in Art History and Philosophy at the University of Melbourne and 2017 recipient of the International Museums and Collections Award, recently commenced her month-long placement at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Clare has been working closely with collections staff on projects across their museums and cultural collections, and with a special interest in decorative arts and the Arts and Crafts movement the campus and culturally rich city of Birmingham is providing much to inspire! You can follow Clare’s 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 placement working with the collections and museums of the partner university. The Award enables them to develop professional skills in collections management, enrich their studies and the opportunity to consider collections within an international context.
