SOAD Alumna awarded an AMaGA ACT Internship Prize
School of Art & Design alumna Sophia Halloway, along with fellow ANU student Georgia Reid, have been announced as the recipient of the inaugural Australian Museums and Galleries (AMaGA) ACT Branch Internship Prize.
The internship prize is an award for high performing students in the ACT undertaking an internship in the GLAM sector as part of their university studies. In 2019, the prize was open to students that undertook an internship program through the Centre for Art History and Art Theory and the Centre for Heritage and Museum Studies at the ANU.
Sophia Halloway completed a Bachelor of Art History & Curatorship (Honours) in 2019, as part of her studies she interned at Canberra Contemporary Art Space (CCAS).
Georgia Reid completed a Bachelor of Archaeological Practice from ANU in 2018, and is currently undertaking a Masters in Archaeological and Evolutionary Science / Museum and Heritage Studies. She interned at Endangered Heritage.
Sophia and Georgia were awarded the Internship Prize by Australian Museums and Galleries Association. Both recipients received outstanding reports from their intern supervisors and for their academic performance. To celebrate Sophia and Georgia's work, AMaGA ACT has given them both an annual membership to AMaGA and a gift voucher for The Curatoreum.
