Museum Volunteers Malaysia is calling for applicants to join its seventh training programme. The training programme will start on January 17, 2009 and will consist of 13 sessions over three months. It will cover Malaysia’s rich and complex heritage, its history, ceramics, textiles, jewelry and traditional costumes.
“If you are fluent in English, interested in Malaysia’s heritage, and can commit to following the course on Saturday mornings between 9 and 12, you are the kind of person we are looking for,” says Diane Banz-Derez, coordinator of the Saturday Guiding Programmes for MVM.
