We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2023 round of the Fellowship, Mentorship and Volunteer Placement Program.
The Program provides professional development opportunities to museum and gallery staff, and museum volunteers in NSW. The Fellowships are designed for senior professionals to undertake a two-week placement within an international institution, while the Mentorships placements are available for early to mid-career staff with an Australian host organisation for two weeks. The Volunteer Placements allow for volunteers from small or volunteer managed museums to also be placed within an Australian cultural institution.
