Recipients Announced for the 2015 Roving Curator Program


The Roving Curator Program supports the development of quality cultural exhibitions in Victoria. The program is administered by Museums Australia (Victoria) with funds received from Creative Victoria.

Designed to provide onsite training, advice and assistance, the Roving Curator program offers an exhibitions professional (Roving Curator) to work with a museum or gallery on an exhibition-related project.

The assessment panel recently met to select the five organisations that will receive assistance from the Program in 2015. The recipients are:

Benalla Historical Society for onsite training on exhibition development, label writing, and help with planning for a new temporary exhibition for 2016.

B-24 Liberator Memorial Restoration Fund for assistance with exhibition development for a pop-up exhibition about the role of the B-24 in repatriating WW2 prisoners of war.

Birchip Historical Society for facilitating display development for a new community facility.

Dromana Historical Society for assistance with exhibition development, label writing, and advice on design and production.

Knox Historical Society to help enhance interpretation in permanent and temporary exhibitions, and advice on exhibition marketing.

Congratulations to all!


The Roving Curator Program is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
