Background:

The Bulldog Trust has developed an internship programme to help individuals looking to gain skills and experience working in a museum or gallery environment. This 6 month paid internship will be based at Two Temple Place, headquarters of the Bulldog Trust, which becomes an exhibition venue for three months each year. 

We are now preparing to host our eighth exhibition celebrating the bicentenary of John Ruskin’s birth from 26 January-22 April 2019. This ambitious exhibition, in partnership with The Guild of St George and Museums Sheffield, will position key objects from The Guild’s collection, alongside Ruskin’s contemporaries as well as newly commissioned material by contemporary artists, to explore how John Ruskin’s influence, throughout the arts, education, the economy and the environment, is still being felt today.
