MAP’s internship programmes provide the opportunity to learn about the operations of a nonprofit art institution, and offer experiences in working with rare and diverse artworks.
MAP is committed to building and sustaining a new museum of international standards in south India.
The museum’s mission is to exhibit, interpret and preserve a growing collection of art and cultural artefacts, motivated by a belief that museums can play a positive role in society. Our current team is full of smart, talented and interesting people who love the arts. It is not unusual to find us pouring over a recent acquisition and admiring its qualities. At the same time, it is also not unusual to find us celebrating museum milestones or birthdays over cake, chai and coffee!
We look beyond CVs for people with skill sets that align with our mission. We like people who outperform themselves year-on-year, deliver high-quality projects to deadlines and work seamlessly across levels and teams. Our recruiting process is transparent and open, and we are an equal opportunities employer. At MAP, we welcome creativity, excellence and different perspectives of individuals from all backgrounds. Join the organisation that is set to change the way museums are viewed in India!

The intern will directly experience how (textile) collections are documented and digitised while also allowing them to engage with histories, techniques and materials.
