  • Internship textile inventory and conservation
    We are looking for a motivated intern in textile restoration for an unpaid internship. This internship focuses on inventorying, rehousing and research, not on active restoration. Under supervision, the intern will help make an inventory of the textile collection and photograph the textiles. During the internship, he/she will also conduct research into the techniques used in the RMCA's textile collection. This internship is an excellent opportunity for a textile conservation student to gain experience in a museum environment with a unique collection.
    We are looking for a person who can start as of May 2021 for an internship of at least 3 months. Applications can be submitted until 07 March 2021.
