We are delighted to announce that Wangaratta Stories won the Historical Interpretation Award at the Victorian Community History Awards 2018. The project was part of the Roving Curator Program run by Museums Australia (Victoria).
The August-October issue of INSITE on the theme 'Ethics' has arrived in member’s mailboxes. Expect to read about the ethics of repatriation, human remains from war, art and institutional risk, telling LGBTQ stories, and ethical processes for taking oral histories.
A hands-on workshop that covers the fundamentals of collection management and cataloguing, using the Victorian Collections system.
INSITE magazine is about the people and stories that together make up our diverse Victorian museum and gallery community. With interviews, articles, and industry news, it is essential reading for all staff and volunteers in the sector.
This issue is on the theme ‘Ethics’ and features articles that explores the ethical issues facing collection custodians and, in some cases, challenge historical attitudes and underlying prejudices.
Other items in this issue are a recap of the very successful Agents of Change national conference and an outline of the objectives of the AICCM’s Collection Environment Survey. There are our regular columns of Museum News, Apps & Online and Branch News that will bring you up-to-date with sector info.
