Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) Passes Resolution Urging Art Museums to Provide Paid Inte


The Board of Trustees of the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) approved a resolution calling calling on art museums to provide paid internships. "Providing paid internships is an important step for the art museum field in creating and sustaining a diverse, equitable, accessible, and inclusive set of opportunities, said Jill Medvedow, Co-Chair of AAMD’s Professional Issues committee and director of the ICA Boston. “Internships are an important gateway for those seeking careers in art museums, providing incredible opportunities for hands-on experience in many aspects of an institution’s operations. Yet by failing to pay interns, we ensure that these experiences are only really accessible to those who already financially secure and, often, people who have established career networks available to them.”
