Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center Internship 2020

Deadline: June 12, 2020.

The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center believes that a great 21st century museum is more than a building. We must engage communities in surprising and innovative ways, transcending boundaries and barriers. We are a migratory museum that brings Asian Pacific American history, art and culture to you through innovative museum experiences online and throughout the United States.

The Center works to redefine and expand the traditional museum model to transform how museums can be places for civic engagement, critical and constructive dialogue, and social justice. Through public programs, like our signature series Culture Labs, that invite visitors to inquire, discover, and learn via direct exchanges with artists, scholars, and cultural practitioners, we engage the public through events that recognize art and culture as vehicles that can bring them together in a new model of museum experience.
The NASENI executive vice chairman assured the registrar that the equipment would be supplied to the board and would meet the specifications agreed upon.
