MAC, PIMA, WAMP and SADCAMM.
In November 1997, CAM held a workshop in Nairobi entitled:
"Children in African Museums: the Undiscovered Audience".
An article on this successful workshop appeared in Museum
International, 202, April-June, 1999. One result of the
workshop was the formation of the Group for Children in
African Museums (GCAM) a network of participants interested
in making museums "children-friendly" and helping to link
museums and museum professionals, to support and promote
children's programmes, and share ideas and programmes across
the continent and beyond.
The Internship Program, as it applies to museums, is administered
through the Canadian Museums Association (CMA). It provides
funds to assist Canadian young people to undertake international
youth internships. The internship is designed to assist
the interns, the host museum and CAM.
The Commonwealth Association of Museums operates a Distance
Learning Programme in basic museum studies. It has continued
to do so during the Triennial Period and has experienced
increasing demand for this training.
CAM was able to establish a website in 1999 with the kind
assistance and support of the Maltwood Museum and Art Gallery
at the University of Victoria and Martin Segger, its Director.
CAM is very grateful for the site development and technical
maintenance of the website. The URL is http://www.maltwood.uvic.ca/cam/
