The Cayman National Cultural Foundation (CNCF) has recognised a need to develop an administrative support network for the industry and has determined that an annual Cultural Ambassador Internship programme will not only benefit Cayman’s arts and cultural organisations but also significantly assist the arts and cultural community as a whole.
The programme is designed to give young Caymanians the chance to gain first-hand experience in the field of nonprofit arts administration. The goal is to expose individuals to Cayman’s arts and cultural organisations and their work through meaningful working experiences. Cultural Ambassadors will work directly with Cayman’s major cultural agencies, including the National Museum, the National Trust and the National Gallery, with CNCF having overall responsibility for scheduling and training. Working under the guidance of experienced professionals, Cultural Ambassadors will gain a wide variety of arts management experiences through hands-on assignments including, special events, arts research, administrative support and collaborative projects. Cultural Ambassadors will also gain non-profit management experience in strategic planning, fundraising, marketing and audience development.
The programme will provide individuals with the tools and networking connections needed to build successful careers in the arts and cultural industries and inspire individuals to take on new and innovative entrepreneurial projects or pursue further arts and cultural education abroad.
Corporate sponsors are now being accepted to partner with CNCF on these important projects.
