Appointment of Ann Ramsden as CAM Secretary-General Edmonton, Canada, July 1, 2020…
“As an intern with CAM, I worked on so many exciting projects, both internationally for CAM – working on a Caribbean-Canadian Museum Exchange and gaining experience in networking and grant writing – and developing and installing an exhibition at the National Gallery, while also working with different departments for a well-rounded experience.” – Shona MacKay, CAM Intern
“I found I was better prepared to work in museums after having done the CAM DLP than graduates of museology programmes, when I got to the point in my career that I was hiring them. It’s good for the basics, the foundations; what you build on that is up to you.” – Mrinalini Venkateswaran, Museum Consultant at Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum and Doctoral candidate in History, University of Cambridge
“The CAM distance learning course opened up a world of possibilities for me within the museum world. It also gave me a better understanding and appreciation of what each person does at the museum, from the cleaner to the conservator to the curator to the CEO. It is definitely a must for EVERYONE working at museums” – Annelize Kotze, Iziko South African Museum
“I interned with CAM at the Vanuatu Cultural Centre in Port-Vila, Vanuatu where I produced an exhibit and educational material on ni-vanuatu women and kastoms. Thanks to this internship, I developed practical museum skills and international experience working in culture and heritage. I am now the Museum Coordinator of a local Museum and Archives in Greater Vancouver, BC.” – Kanchan Lal, PoCo Heritage Museum and Archives.
