Advanced Curatorial Education Programme
The professional training and development of curatorial staff plays a key role within the AEJM's mission to assist members in meeting the challenges of today. The AEJM therefore plans to offer an annual Curatorial Education Programme, to be held in different European Jewish Museums in cooperation with relevant academic institutions. The training courses will focus on vital aspects of curatorial work: the identification and documentation of Judaica, the development of conservation, research tools and skills, interpretation and educational aspects of Judaica.
The educational programme has been designed to meet the particular needs of curatorial staff. Participation is free of charge to staff members from European Jewish Museums. However, each museum must cover its own travel and accommodation expenses. Grants though, are offered to Museums that have limited financial means to send their curatorial staff. Since participation is limited and we would like to offer as many instututions as possible, each museum will be allowed to send one curator. Requests to send additional curators from the same museum will be put on a waiting list, in case vacancies become available.
