Feedback from Interns:

I wanted to work in a museum but I had neither knowledge nor experience when it came to Museum Management. Internship at DakshinaChitra is really helpful as they make sure the interns work under each and every department of the museum for a significant period of time, enough to gain a good understanding. We are learning through the work given here. Now I have practical and thorough knowledge of how museums work and have a deeper understanding of areas I was not aware of. This has widened my horizons and shown me new areas I am interested in. Sahana S

We're almost 7 months into this internship and it has been nothing but fruitful. On a daily we get to not just witness but also experience different situations as we shuffle between the various departments. From taking schools and groups on guided tours to handling workshops to organizing large scale programs we've done it all. I can vouch for the fact that if one wants to be in the managerial departments of the art and museum industry, there is no better place that Dakshinachitra to gain the exact work experience required to take the plunge.

Though I studied Civil Engineering, I am very much interested in learning the art and culture of India. In order to pursue my interest I joined the internship program of DakshinaChitra. It's going good and I hope to learn more here. Kavichitra M

To say about my evaluation of the internship as a whole now it's definitely a success. I got some valuable insights into the work field of an organization and to a certain degree also of an employee. I think it was the best choice for my professional growth. I find it a bit difficult to work as a team and I considered that was the challenging part because of the dedication, commitment and the interest each one had. And I had conducted three programs independently with a fellow intern and this gave me a tremendous experience on the whole. Gradually, I was managing the given activities on my own. Everyday is a new day when it comes to learning. I believe in Complexity and Discomfort only makes you grow'. I frankly appreciate this internship Suguna Ram
