The Blumhardt Foundation, Creative New Zealand and The Dowse have collaborated to create the role of Blumhardt / CNZ Curatorial Intern.

The internship provides an important opportunity for an emerging curator or artist to develop curatorial skills and experience in an exhibition project focusing on the decorative arts and design. The intern will research and develop an exhibition for the Blumhardt Gallery's exhibition programme at The Dowse.

2019 Blumhardt Curatorial Intern

Gina Matchitt is the 2019 Blumhardt / CNZ Curatorial Intern and is curating an exhibition for The Dowse’s Blumhardt Gallery, which will open in early 2020.
