Museums of History NSW partners with Museums & Galleries of NSW in support of Storyplace Roadshow touring project.

Teaching history in museums through objects

Museums of History NSW (MHNSW)  has partnered with Museums & Galleries of NSW (M&G NSW) in support of the Storyplace Roadshow – creating resources and assisting in the delivery of educational workshops across NSW.

M&G NSW and MHNSW have worked closely to design resources, including learning videos for volunteers and staff working in small to medium sized museums across the state.

The videos, produced by MHNSW’s Digital, Collections Care, Curatorial and Learning teams and the Regional Coordinator, focus on museum management: object learning, collection care and storytelling through best practice.

The first in a series of learning videos will be launched on Wednesday, 21 February, on M&G NSW and the MHNSW websites.
They include:

Produced by MHNSW, the learning videos will be used throughout the workshops, and MHNSW staff will join the Roadshow in various locations to deliver in-person presentations on Education, Significance and Collections Care.

“We are delighted to collaborate with M&G NSW to support regional museums that care for very significant collections that tell the stories of their places and people to audiences of all ages and backgrounds through Storyplace,” said Mary Darwell. CEO, MHNSW.

‘Working with MHNSW has enabled the Storyplace team to deliver a more diverse program of workshop support to small museums throughout the state. The Roadshow will culminate in publishing the first batch of school curriculum focused stories to the Storyplace website in the second half of 2024.’  said Brett Adlington, CEO of M&G NSW.

Storyplace is proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Museums & Galleries of NSW
