The Collections Management Certification Program

The Collections Management Certification Program 2015-2016 was truly great experience, that taught me a lot, both on a professional and personal level. The added bonus is that the class was held in American Corner, a very welcoming and user-friendly place, where it was easy to learn, but also have fun and make true friends with other classmates. What stands out the most for me is Fionn Zarubica's approach to teaching, her dedication and connection to us students and incredibly rich course content. I think this course is essential for anyone working or thinking of working in museum or cultural institution, because of the breadth and quality of information Fionn Zarubica shares, as well as her ability to inspire everyone to be a better student, better professional, and ultimately a better person. This program influenced me in more ways than one, but above all, it challenged my perception that a lot is needed for any kind of change in Serbian museums. I now realize that with knowledge gained in this course and armed with positive change in attitude, we can start building healthier, happier centers of culture in our country, one step at the time.
