Internships for 2001-2001

CAM is happy to announce that two internships have been awarded for 2001 2001. Nina Berkhout and Tracy Hammond are both graduates of the Masters Program in Museum Studies at the University of Toronto. Nina will be located on Long Island in the Bahamas and is working under the supervision of Kim Outten Stubbs, Curator of the National Museum of the Bahamas, a CAM member. Long Island is in the final stages of establishing their community museum in a dual purpose library! museum building and Nina will be working with them towards the opening day in 2002. Tracy Hammond is located in Mombasa, Kenya at the Program for Museum Development in Africa (PMDA). This internship was very successful last year and Tracy will build on the work of last year's intern. Among other tasks, she will work on the development of a website for PMDA and has already been initiated by attendance at the planning workshop for Children in African Museums, thus contributing to CAM and PMDA's joint interest in children and museums. We anticipate very fruitful internships and interesting reports in future Bulletins.
