Launched in 2018, the initiative NEMO Political Internships in Museums aims to give a greater understanding of museum work. The objective is to foster museum advocacy and to showcase museums’ social importance to politicians and other stakeholders.The internship lasts for half a day and politicians will either intern by themselves or together with their staff. Each internship is tailored according to the politician’s field and interest.
MEP and member of the CULT committee Julie Ward was the first ever intern to take part in the programme on 25 May 2018. Read about her experienced from the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht, The Netherlands, here.
