Terramar Museum is a small museum, founded in 2016 located in Kralendijk, Bonaire. We support all creative and academic efforts to showcase Bonaire's vibrant culture and diversity. We are also a venue to discussing the island’s current and historical social issues and are looking for a volunteer/intern to help us update our fixed collection. 

The volunteer will assist our collection mediator and team with the research and preparation of materials to present Bonaire’s geographic formation. The aim is to compile key facts for the development of an updated permanent expo that explains the island’s geological formation and changes that have led our landscape to look the way it does today. The volunteer will help research this content, and later on, if both parties are interested, may assist in the development of the presentation.

Potential areas of study: Undergraduate degree in geology

Key skills: leadership skills, comfortable with digital tools, good writing, enjoys researching, organized, fluent in English (great if also Papiamentu and Dutch) and self-directed, but also able to work in a team. 

What we offer

This position offers the chance to work with and learn from our small team. Your work will have a tangible, direct impact on our fixed collection and therefore the island. Your research will be part of the museum and will be read by many visitors, you will be a vital part of our team and your results will be long-lasting and meaningful. 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in meetings, events, (if applicable) interviews, and the development of our collection. If the volunteer chooses to conduct her/his research from Bonaire, the volunteer will have full access to our office space, and advice and guidance on getting settled here for a short-term stay. 

We are a small non-profit and so unable to offer a paid position at the moment; performance could lead to future opportunities. Volunteers will work closely with Elena Baker who has experience working in museums, the non-profit sector as well as in education.

TASKS TO SUPPORT

Depending on the time dedication, Terramar aims to receive support in the following tasks:

  • Provide input and feedback on content on products being developed
  • Conduct/lead research on Bonaire’s geological formation
  • Report final research results in a way that is engaging for a museum, perhaps even develop learning activities for adults and children 
  • Participate, if interested, in conducting grant research to finance the development of permanent presentation
  • Participate, if interested, in the development of this portion of the collection

DURATION

Ideally, we aim to engage someone until the updated permanent collection is fully developed. The initial commitment of two months as a trial period can be renewed as of interest of the volunteer and the company.
