ICCROM welcomes Jessica Edwards from the United Kingdom. Jessica holds a BA in Theology from the University of Oxford and has extensive experience in the television industry, tailoring products for different cultural audiences. She is currently working towards her MA in Sustainable Cultural Heritage at the American University of Rome (AUR). As part of her plan of research studies, and within the framework of an agreement between ICCROM and the AUR, Jessica’s curricular internship will be hosted at ICCROM this summer.
As an intern for the Office of the Director-General, Jessica will carry out research for the project “ICCROM New Building & Exhibition”, drawing on the experience of the “Fundraising for Cultural Heritage projects” module of the AUR Master, taught by Dr Peter Gould. She will also work on finalizing the “Italy’s Cultural Heritage Fundraising Tools” (2013) research report, carried out by Invitalia in collaboration with ICCROM. Both Projects will contribute to the research for her Master’s Thesis on cultural heritage fundraising and philanthropy in Italy.
