Internship at Canterbury Shaker Village

Volunteer Internship at Canterbury Shaker Village

Canterbury Shaker Village, a National Historic Landmark located in
central New Hampshire, is seeking a volunteer intern for a storage
reorganization project beginning July 20, and running through the
end of August.  The intern will work under the direction of the
Chief Curator, a nationally-known consulting decorative arts
conservator, and a contract conservator.  The project will involve
documenting the locations of objects, many of which remain where
they were left by the Shakers, careful surface cleaning, selection
of appropriate object housing, and re-location of objects into the
newly-improved storage areas.  The internship will provide an
excellent opportunity to gain collections care experience within a
real-world historic site museum, as well as to be involved with
nationally significant cultural artifacts.

Canterbury Shaker Village consists of twenty-five original historic
buildings, dating from 1792-1939,  situated on a rolling hilltop
surrounded by 694 acres of fields, woodlots and ponds.  The Village
provides an ideal summer location that is only minutes away from
lakes and trails, and only an hour from the White Mountains and from
the sites and entertainment of Portsmouth, NH.

Applicants should be energetic, well-organized, and possess
excellent dexterity.  Training or experience with collections
conservation and/or storage reorganization is preferred but not
required.  Please immediately send a letter of interest, along with
a copy of your resume, and three references to:

    Chief Curator
    Canterbury Shaker Village
    288 Shaker Road
    Canterbury NH 03224
    Shakervillage [at] csv__mv__com.

The internship is open until filled.
