Education & Training – Professional Exchange Programme

The Museums Association of the Caribbean (MAC) has a vision for the continuous engagement and training of museum professionals across the Caribbean. To this end an exchange programme was envisioned by the Board and adopted by the membership at the 2014 AGM in Kingston Jamaica. The intention of the programme is to provide training opportunities for museum professionals, students of museology, heritage studies and related disciplines through exchanges within the MAC membership circuit. The programme occurs year round and applications can be made at any time. Applications are vetted twice a year, with deadlines occurring on February 28th and September 30th annually. The applications are vetted by a selection committee and the student and/or professional will be placed in a listed, suitable institution.
This initial stage of the programme is self-financed as MAC and our host institutions are not able to cover living expenses or airfare. Where funding is available applicants will be notified.

For more information, please review our museum exchange programme guidelines.
