Maren Siebert, FOAM Museum (NL)

Foam Lab is a traineeship for young professionals and provides relevant work experience within the museum. A team of young thinkers and creators, all recently graduated with multidisciplinary backgrounds, are working together on projects and renew the museum from within. The seventh group of Foam Lab started in January, so Foam has a broad experience in working with young, cultural trainees.

This talk, by Eva Bremer and Maren Siebert, focuses on two aspects: what’s in it for the museum and what’s in it for these young talents? Also, we discuss the development of our traineeship over time, including our struggles and unexpected, positive outcomes.
