Since it has been more than a week from my last post, I would really like to just move forward and give myself the opportunity to develop the solutions already in my open letter, with an offer to assist PAM's development department_ by researching and writing a grant that brings artists in as residents, docents, teachers/trainers, to expand their programming and fill in the gaps or extend the dreams of the museum, or to meet their needs, or to fulfill their short or long-range planning.
• I will follow that up with doing the research to learn what the goals and dreams of the museum are, as well as where their strengths and weaknesses are, in accomplishing these goals, etc.
• Interviewing teachers, fine art directors, or their docents are good ways to find out stuff.
• Then, I may make an appointment with PAM’s Director of Development to outline or brainstorm this in person, and leave my résumé.
• Finally I will find a need, and offer to work one day a week or more, if I choose, for free so that I can get a feel for this environment to see if I’d really like to work there!
My assessment is, this is all about having a mutually respectful chance to be heard and seen when applying in the first place.
