Description

The Cameron Art Museum Tour Guide Internship Program for Students of Color is available to students who are interested in art, museums, and education. You must be enthusiastic, cheerful, and willing to learn. Preference is given to applicants who have experience/education in art or teaching and to those who speak Spanish. As in intern, you will advance the educational mission of CAM by conducting tours and providing educational programs for the general public (children, adults, families). Tour Guides provide tours of the museum for groups of students and adults. Utilizing the techniques of Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), dialogue and inquiry, and role play and storytelling, the tour guide connects visitors with the museum’s changing exhibitions and its public sculpture, Boundless. Tour Guides are trained in VTS, receive unconscious bias training, and learn about the Community Resiliency Model and arts integration, all of which inform the museum’s educational practices. This internship is located in Wilmington, NC, and is a one-year commitment.
