Selected students from 13-16 years of age work under the supervision of Dr Susan Day of the Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah Amricani, which houses a significant museum collection of the Al-Sabah family and the Kuwaiti Cultural Collection. The students learn about all aspects of museum administration, including conservation, acquisitions, collection management, museum management and communications, exhibition planning and execution, and museum-based education.
The purpose of the DAI Museum Intern programme is to introduce students to professional opportunities in the museum world. Participants will study art history and observe/learn about five different museum-oriented professional paths. Each participant will then select two paths and do a six month residency in each.
At the conclusion of the programme, the students will work together to create, curate, execute and manage every aspect of an exhibition. This two-year programme culminates in students holding their own exhibition of personal artefacts based on their chosen theme.
In 2013-14, a group of Sixth Form students also took part in Carnival al-Khayal, a creative problem-solving workshop involving teams of students working together to resolve a predefined challenge and present their solutions. We look forward once again to participating in this challenge in 2016.
For further information about either of these opportunities, please contact Mr John Lambert.
