Jervis Bay Workshop May 2019

Join us in Jervis Bay NSW 9 - 10 May 2019

Workshop Theme: How to be a ‘must visit’ museum

Book Now!

Come join us for the AMMC Regional Workshop hosted by the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum

The theme of the Workshop is centered on How to be a 'Must Visit' museum.  There will be sessions on brand, marketing and ideas for interpretation.  Read more here.

As Jervis Bay is 3 hours south of Sydney, travel may be required, so we recommend arrival in Huskisson or near by on the 8th May 2019. 

Plus it will be followed by a workshop dedicated to developing your submission for the next AMMC / ANMM travelling exhibition, What Floats Your Boat – Remarkable stories of Australians and their vessels

Start preparing your stories!

Exhibition Content

Every town holds many stories of local people and their vessels; tales of tragedy, survival, heroism, discovery, adventure or love. It is these stories that give a unique insight into the lives of individuals and their communities.

The AMMC membership will have the opportunity to supply the content for the exhibition by nominating stories that relate to a person that has an important, unusual or unexpected connection to a vessel. These narratives need to have happened in Australia, though the person or vessel need not to be Australian. Most importantly the chosen stories should be engaging and interesting.

 

Story Submissions

The stories will be submitted to What Floats Your Boat? Remarkable stories of Australians and their vessels and uploaded onto the AMMC website.  AMMC members will have the opportunity to take part in the selection process of the stories that will be part of the final banner exhibition.  Read more HERE

Regional Workshop in Hobart

In the run-up to Hobart’s 2019 Australian Wooden Boat Festival, an AMMC Workshop was hosted by the Maritime Museum of Tasmania in Hobart on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th February 2019.

And what better theme for the Workshop than Australians and their boats - What floats your boat? Remarkable stories of Australians and their vessels, the next AMMC/ANMM Travelling Exhibition. Plenty of delegate Workshop interaction and the chance to learn about writing for exhibitions and target audiences.

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?

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.

Thanks to AMMC and the Tasmanian Maritime Museum for hosting the workshop in Hobart over the past couple of days. It was lovely to meet so many members with interesting stories about our diverse maritime history. My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Hobart and had a wonderful time at the wooden boat festival. 

I look forward to sharing my story for the “What floats your boat” touring exhibition and reading other stories from coast to coast.

As a brand new member of the Australian Maritime Museums Council, I would like to convey my thanks to all those involved in the staging of the Sydney based workshop "Navigating Restoration" at the Australian National Maritme Museum/Sydney Heritage Fleet, over the past two days.

I have been a volunteer tour guide at the ANMM for a little over 8 years and being a bit of a history buff (but certainly no expert) I am glad to have found another channel within which to learn,…
