Call for 2020 Museum partners

The British Museum is seeking museum, gallery and heritage organisations to host trainees for the second year of Museum Futures. Recruitment of trainees would begin summer 2019 for January 2020 placements.

In the 2020 cohort year there will be 9 trainees, one will be based at the British Museum, one at another London museum/gallery and 7 based at partner museums across the UK.

We are looking for partner museums that can identify a well situated and keen supervisor to support a trainee to work on an important digital project related to museum collections. Ideal trainee projects could connect to the four key digital concepts we will be exploring through regular network training sessions: digitisation; data management; digital access and engagement; and digital preservation.
