· Ensuring that adult programs reflect and embed the principles described in the Museum’s relevant learning, interpretive and outreach policies, and relevant Museum strategic priorities for learning and audience development.
· Exploring the use of new technologies and new media as they relate to the provision of adult programs, and attracting and communicating with new audiences.
· Managing the planning, production and promotion of information to support adult programs.
· Working with curators, researchers, First Nations peoples and other specialists and stakeholders, both within the Museum and in the broader community.
· Developing and maintaining links with professional and community organisations and staying abreast of current trends in public programming, both nationally and internationally, to ensure that programs are responsive and innovative.
