“The Collections and Research Department of the Anacostia Community Museum continues to be thrilled to work with the interns from the WCSC on projects affecting the engaged documentation and exhibition of community history and heritage at the Smithsonian. Currently, the ACM is interested in internship projects focused on collections care and documentation. In support of ACM’s goal of providing the highest quality housing for, description of and access to it’s permanent collection, we are seeking emerging museum professionals to work with collections and staff to research and care for collections. WCSC interns have traditionally brought the highest levels of commitment, curiosity and professionalism to engaged scholarship to the Museum and we look forward to continuing to work with students interested in community centered museum practice.” - Dr. Joshua Gorman, ACM Collections Manager
