MAKE A DAY OF IT
Come and celebrate with M&G NSW at the 2012 IMAGinE awards night. MAKE A DAY OF IT and join one of two separate professional development workshops, Tell It How It Is: Oral History for Museums or A Day at the Museum: An event for regional curators at the Australian Museum.
Come to Sydney, make a day of it.
With all the nominations received, the judges will be meeting soon to choose who will win a coveted IMAGinE award. Their decisions will be revealed at the IMAGinE awards night on Friday 23 November. Come along to celebrate (and commiserate) with colleagues and enjoy some fine music, great canapés and beverages, and reflect on the year that was.
Established in 2008, the IMAGinE awards celebrate the achievements and extraordinary diversity of the NSW museum and gallery sector and those who work within it, both paid and volunteer.
When: Friday 23 November 2012, 6.00pm - 9.00pm
Where: White Rabbit Gallery, 30 Balfour Street, Chippendale, Sydney
Cost: $55 (full price) and $35 (concession including volunteers, students and seniors)
Collecting and showcasing oral histories can be pivotal for museums wishing to reflect the personal, intimate, human and social accounts of their community and past events. Oral histories investigate and record personal memories and mementos using equipment that is readily available in most homes. Using mobile phones, digital or tape recorders, computers and even pen and paper, everyone can play their part in preserving our cultural heritage through the respectful telling of diverse and poignant stories.
In this half-day seminar, speakers will look at techniques for collecting oral history; simple methods of recording, understanding and archiving narrated memories, and how these memories are portrayed on virtual platforms and through online exhibitions.
When: Friday 23 November 2012, 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Where: Museums & Galleries NSW, 43-51 Cowper Wharf Road, Woolloomoolloo
Cost: $35 (one participant) and $80 (three participants)
MAKE A DAY OF IT: $60 (IMAGinE awards + Telling It How It Is)
M&G NSW, in partnership with the Australian Museum and Regional Public Galleries NSW (RPG NSW), is delighted to present A Day at the Museum: An event for regional curators.
This event is specifically designed to showcase opportunities to regional gallery and museum curators, managers and directors on how to build collaborations around the Australian Museum collection. Delegates will be introduced to the Museum’s significant items, artefacts and areas of focus with an eye to developing curatorial and project ideas at their own institutions or in collaboration with other institutions.
RPG NSW has generously offered to cover the registration fees of RPG NSW member organisations (one per organisation).
Places are strictly limited so hurry to secure your place at this special event! While this event is available to all, preference will be given to regional gallery and museum curators, managers and directors.
When: Friday 23 November 2012, 10.00am – 3.00pm
Where: Night Parrot Room, Australian Museum (entry from William Street, East Sydney)
MAKE A DAY OF IT: $90 (IMAGinE awards + A Day at the Museum)
