An innovative idea for advocacy: political internships

Mariya Gabriel, the European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, did an internship in a museum. NEMO, the Network of European Museum Organisations, organised this “political internship” to offer a way to get insight into the value of museums and museum work, especially in times of the pandemic. The Children’s Science Centre Muzeiko in Sofia, Bulgaria, was chosen as it offered a good match with the portfolio of the Commissioner. 
What a great idea for advocacy for cultural organisations.
