Agents for Creative Action is a group of sixteen Williams College students who animate the museum’s collection and convene the public around art and ideas. They meet weekly on Mondays from 4-5:30 to learn about museum practice as creative process and develop original programs, content, and projects that offer visitors new ways of engaging with the museum.

Summer Internships
WCMA’s Summer Internship program for students combines hands-on learning with close mentorship. Students spend eight weeks working with curators, educators, registrars, and other staff on a variety of projects, from research and exhibition development to social media and art cataloguing. Weekly programs offer a behind-the-scenes look at WCMA and bring interns and staff together for casual conversations about museum careers.

Our Summer Internships are full-time, paid positions for Williams College students. Contact Amy Tatro for more information.
