Programming for your Collection: Workshop and Object Storage Tour

27 February 2018

This one-day program has been designed for staff and volunteers of small museums and the collecting sector as well as interested members of the public. Lead by Regional Program Producer Deborah Vaughan, this workshop will explore the basic principles of producing effective public programs that will enliven and interpret a collection and increase visitation. Some simple group programming exercises will be carried out during the workshop. Display Store: ‘state of art’ deep storage tour is a one-hour tour of the Display Store lead by MAAS registrar Scott Winston. Participants on this tour will gain behind the scenes access and knowledge to how this facility is designed to house objects for optimum conditions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
