Job Title: Curator, The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum


The student researched and curated a permanent exhibition for the museum on Black screen history. As well as a physical display created a digital exhibition , recorded two podcasts and wrote a blog about her process.

Our intern’s work is a big step forward in making the museum more inclusive and her intelligent and rigourous approach has produced a very strong set of outcome for the project.

I found the student to be an excellent intern and we were lucky to have her. It was important that this task was paid and she was exactly the right person to do the job through the combination of her research interests and skills. You can link to her work here


We are delighted that she may continue to help us as a volunteer in her third year.
