I’ve come away with increased confidence and greater insight into programming for young people and people with complex access requirements and look forward to developing my ideas and sharing what I’ve learnt with my colleagues in Orange.Mentorship at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, 2019
Do it. You will learn so much and have a blast at the same time. It’s like going to work but you have a whole team supporting you evert step of the way, and issues are resolved right away, and when you go back to your own position you feel excited and refreshed and you can start applying all the new skills you learned.Mentorship at the Art Gallery of NSW, 2019
The professional conversations and experiences I undertook as part of the mentoring program at the AGNSW were invaluable to me to stimulate and build induvial skills in regard to arts and cultural programming for the Manning Regional Art Gallery, and also in the broader context of providing learning to create partnerships within my own Mid Coast Council organisation and in the greater Mid Coast Region.Mentorship at the Art Gallery of NSW, 2019
I cannot thank Bob and the SLM team enough for their generosity in making time to share their expertise, experience and strategies, provide planning documents and reports that will be incredibly helpful as I navigate my way through reviewing and developing new exhibitions, creating interpretive displays that authentically tell our local stories, provide education and visitor programs, as well as new events and marketing strategies that create a better visitor experience in our museums.Mentorship at Sydney Living Museums, 2018
