The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands is accepting applications for two internships for local students pursuing a career in the arts and creative industries.
The Gallery is accepting applications for the 2015/16 yearlong NGCI Deutsche Bank Internship, in addition to the shorter NGCI Summer Internship program, which runs from June through August.
The successful applicants will learn about all aspects of museum and gallery management including marketing, education, curating exhibitions, event planning, operations and retail administration, according to a press release from the National Gallery. Students will also be able to meet and work with local artists.
In addition, for students looking for a shorter introduction to the museum world, the Gallery regularly takes on more than 20 voluntary work experience students annually as part of NGCI’s extensive Creative Careers program.
Janet Hislop, chief country officer at Deutsche Bank, said, “I am delighted that Deutsche Bank maintains its support of an initiative that consistently opens up exciting opportunities for local students, and that it retains such a positive relationship with the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.”
Applications deadline for the NGCI Summer Internship is May 15. The deadline for the 2015/16 NGCI Deutsche Bank Internship is May 31.
NGCI Education Coordinator Kerwin Ebanks said, “If we are unable to place a student with a paid internship, we will strive to match the student’s skills and available time with a voluntary project that will add value to their resume.
He encourages anyone who is interested in a career in the arts to get in touch with the National Gallery.
