MA Art History & Visual Culture

Internship Leads to Employment for Visual Arts Management and Curating Student

A core component of the MA in Visual Arts Management and Curating programme is a 9-week internship carried out over the summer months. Coming towards the end of their MA studies, students tell us that the internship provides them with the opportunity to put into practice the skills and knowledge they have gained during their time at Richmond. Students are placed with a wide range of leading cultural institutions depending on their personal interests. This week we were delighted to hear that Kaitlyn Durvin who has been interning at Arts and Business Council Greater Boston has been offered full time employment.

Arts & Business Boston were so impressed with Kaitlyn’s performance while on placement, that they have created a new position especially for her. In this role Kaitlyn will be responsible for leading on programs, artists and communication.

D’ylnne Plummer, Director of Professional Development, Arts and Business Council Greater Boston commented on Kaitlyn’s performance to date:

“she’s very energetic and attentive, and we know she’ll continue to add a lot of value in her role. We expect there will be a learning curve for her over the next few months, but she asks good questions and makes good decisions, and she also works well autonomously, so we think this will be a great fit. She has done great work during her internship.”
