Join Powerhouse curator, Anni Turnbull for an introductory workshop in developing exhibition concepts and themes, planning, identifying significant objects and images, and other methods of interpretation for exhibitions.
Anni will provide comprehensive information from her long experience working on many Powerhouse exhibitions, curating across areas of the museum’s collection. Anni’s research areas and expertise include the social history of Sydney and NSW looking at social change and migration, environment, sport, diversity, food, health, and significant sites of Sydney, in particular the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
Anni aims to incorporate people’s stories in museum and library collections and make them accessible through oral and video histories, exhibitions, web stories and podcasts. Her current research project is the Australian Culinary Archive, charting Australians’ changing taste buds through chefs and other culinary influencers from Margaret Fulton onwards.Find out more
