Echuca Workshop - Oct 2018

Thank you to AMMC members who attended the Regional Workshop in Echuca 

18-19 October 2018
 

What a wonderful place to hold a Workshop!  Echuca lived up to all expectations; the place, our hosts, the hospitality, the organisation.

A very big thank you to Mesh Thomson and her team at the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre, our guides on the various tours, and to Dot Hammond and Margaret Hart from the Echuca Historical Society. But above all, thank you to all our members who for took part and shared in the lively discussions, helping to demonstrate once again the value of AMMC’s Regional Workshops.

WHAT’S NEXT?

  • The next Workshop will be in Hobart on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th February 2019. The Workshop will begin with a light lunch on Thursday while we register to allow travel to Hobart that day. We will wrap up the Workshop after lunch on Friday for those wishing to head back home. The Workshop will end in time for the Parade of Sail which marks the start of the 2019 Australian Wooden Boat Festival 8-11 February.

    Do book your accommodation as soon as possible. Hobart fills up during the Wooden Boat Festival.  More Workshop details soon. 
 
  • We plan to meet again around April 2019,  the venue and dates will be confirmed as soon as possible.

 

SUBMERGED

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Submerged: stories of Australia’s shipwrecks project. The Submerged Digital Archive is hosted by the AMMC website.

An exceptional number of AMMC Members (n=51) read and voted on the stories. A joint AMMC/ANMM Review Panel used these results with the criteria for evaluation to select the final stories for the display. There were so many excellent stories, we had to add an additional banner! We would now like to announce the final 14 stories for Submerged:

Thank you to the AMMC Membership for your support in making this project such a success. Submerged: stories of Australia’s shipwrecks will tour nationwide from 2018-2020. There are still a number of ways to participate in Submerged, so please register your interest as a host venue via our Bookings tab.
