PAMM has announced three new internship and fellowship programs for college and graduate students in the arts, offering opportunities for creative professionals and aspirants who are just starting their careers.
These initiatives have been made possible through the generous support of the Ford Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation, and the Wege Foundation. Each adds the insight and perspective of younger voices in the curatorial field to PAMM's exhibitions and public programs, and supports PAMM's goals to create a space for diverse voices, vital in our mission to respond to ever-changing landscapes in art and society. The funders of these programs share PAMM's commitment to encouraging diversity and access for a new generation of museum and curatorial professionals.
