The fall New England Museums Now will focus on Social Justice and Equity. 2020 is a complicated year, but so is history. How are we as museum workers grappling with museums' complex histories tied to structural bias and racism? What is your institution doing to confront and dismantle these systems of white privilege? What conversations are you having internally? What actions are you taking externally? Whose input are you elevating, and whose voices are you celebrating? Museums, like people are a work in progress; tell us what progress you are making towards a more just and equitable future for all. Inquiry deadline is September 11.

Our COVID-19 pivot turned out better than I had even hoped. Little Compton Historical Society Women's History Project - outside instead of in. 57 banners with 170 word biographies from the 1600s to the present. Open (and free) by appointment beginning July 7.
I am a graduate Museum Studies student at Harvard Extension School, and am looking for summer internships. Does anyone know of openings in the Boston area that might not be posted on the website? I am interested in media and exhibit design focused internships in particular.
Any museums need PR or communications support? Would any want to have me present www.lionstigersbulldogs.com?
Hello everyone! I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, and if it's not, please feel free to take this down. I recently graduated from McGill University with my Masters of Information Studies degree, with a focus on archives. I'm currently looking for jobs in libraries/museums/archives. So, I thought I'd just put out feelers to see what all is available in New England (which is where I'm hoping to find employment). Thanks again , Chris
Exhibit Designer The Harvard Museums of Science & Culture are seeking an energetic, highly-skilled new addition to their exhibit design team, capable of producing technical drawings at all levels: from general concepts and floor plans to detailed elevations, case layouts, and construction drawings for specialized exhibit components. Museum experience is a plus but not critical. If you are an experienced 3-D designer who loves working creatively and collaboratively, please apply!
