Aiming to encourage, build, and sustain diversity, equity, and inclusion in the arts, the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth is seeking aspiring museum workers for the 2021–24 Hood Museum Board of Advisors Mutual Learning Fellowship. This three-year, three-person, board-funded mutual learning cohort comprises positions in the museum’s Education & Public Programming, Registration & Collections Care, and Curatorial & Exhibitions areas. The fellowship is designed for entry-level candidates who wish to work in the arts and culture sector and are interested in museum technology, but who do not have the advanced degrees or professional experience often required in similar job postings.
