Program Description

In line with our commitment to transparency, there will be a two-stage selection process involving two different committees. The names of the committee members will only be made known with the final result. The deliberative committee will be made up of members of the museum’s team with complementary competences. The consultative committee will be made up of actors from the field of culture, including artists, curators, and leaders of organizations in the museal sector. Care will be taken in the selection of professionals involved in the process to ensure there is no conflict of interest or risk of decisions being made for personal gain. MAM Rio is committed to protecting the privacy of all those involved in the selection process.
