Hear from professionals championing environmental and sustainable values within cultural institutions on their industry career pathways.
Students and researchers are invited to join this Sydney Environment Institute workshop that will explore career pathways in cultural institutions for people with environmentally focused postgraduate research experience. Cultural institutes range from museums and art galleries to theatres and libraries. We will consider the kinds of roles available in the sector — from sustainability management to curatorial and research positions — and the concrete steps that students might take during their candidature to position themselves competitively.
We’ll hear from three panellists who have significant experience working on environmental issues in cultural institutions and will learn about their own journey in the sector and their advice.
