Hood Museum Board of Advisors Mutual Learning Fellow

The Mutual Learning Fellow supports museum mission-driven work via experimentation and learning. Expands the museum’s capabilities in the areas of Communications or Curatorial or Cultural Heritage Technology. Aiming to encourage, build, and sustain diversity, equity, and inclusion in the arts, the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth is seeking aspiring museum workers for the 2024–27 Hood Museum Mutual Learning Fellowship. This three-year, three-person mutual learning cohort comprises positions in the museum’s Curatorial, Communications, and Digital Platforms departments. The fellowship is designed for entry-level candidates who wish to work in the arts and culture sector, but who do not have the advanced degrees (i.e., master’s or doctoral degrees, or graduate-level coursework), nor professional experience and network often required in similar job postings. Instead, following an apprenticeship model, this program emphasizes intensive on-the-job learning, with each member of the cohort spending all three years of the program within one specific discipline.
