On Demand Training
We offer unique guided tours, talks by specialists, ‘on demand’ training and other opportunities to do with museums and museum practice.
Our program is for museum professionals, volunteers and others with an interest in museums.
‘On Demand’ Training
We meet the needs of small organisations by providing workshops ‘on demand’. These provide an introduction to museum practices and issues. They’re also a way to refresh or update knowledge acquired from prior training and experience.
Choose from a range of topics:
- business planning
- care of photographs and negatives
- caring for textiles
- caring for your collections
- conservation planning
- disaster planning
- exhibition design – art
- exhibition design – social history exhibitions
- exhibitions: from concept development to delivery
- grant writing
- significance assessment
- storage, handling and movement of objects
- writing labels
‘On demand’ training is available to members (at discounted rates) and non-members. This service can be provided in Victoria’s regional centres and metropolitan Melbourne.
Contact us to discuss your museum or network’s training needs.
Community Collections Training
From 2007-2010 we presented practical workshops at venues across Victoria about:
- collection management
- exhibition design
- museum standards
- on-line exhibitions
These workshops supported museums in achieving museum standards with information on current issues and practices.
The workshops were free for people who work with community collections, thanks to Heritage Victoria and the state government’s strategy Victoria’s Heritage: Strengthening our communities.
Unfortunately we no longer have funding for the Community Collections Training program.
Exhibition Services (previously known as RETI)
Exhibition Services supports Victorian museums to develop and improve their exhibitions and displays through training and small grants.
Exhibition Services assists museums with basic exhibition, programming and display challenges and encourages museums with limited resources to tour their collections or redevelop an existing exhibition for touring / enhance a touring exhibition.
Exhibition Services provides advice and training on exhibition preparation and display, and touring.
Museums Australia (Victoria) manages Exhibition Services with funds received from the Community Support Fund through Arts Victoria.
