Curatorial Internship

Tell the Story of C21 – Curatorial Internship Opportunity – EXTENDED DEADLINE

C21 invites applications from students interested in visually telling the story of the Center’s history and mission. Founded in 1968, C21 fosters idea generation at the intersection of the humanities, arts and sciences by bringing together scholars and supporting both collaboration and reflection.

C21 has an extensive collection of framed posters of lectures, conferences, and book covers from its 50-year history. Our hope is that they could be re-exhibited to better tell our story and to make our space on the 9th floor of Curtin Hall more engaging and inviting.

How might you re-exhibit our collection to relay the rich history of C21 in more public spaces (lobby / hallway)?  How might you visually situate visitors on the 9th floor so they know they are in a place that invites innovative thought to tackle the most pressing issues of the time across disciplines?

Our budget is small ($1,500), but our potential impact is great. This project can be done as an internship or independent study for credit.

Please submit a single PDF with:

  • Names and bio/s of yourself / your team (if appropriate)
  • Experience in curation
  • Sample budget including materials
  • Your concept for the exhibit
  • Timeline

Application deadline is January 15th. Please submit applications to c21@uwm.edu.
