The Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council are developing the travelling exhibition, What Floats Your Boat – Remarkable stories of Australians and their vessels, using the content provided by the AMMC membership. As part of the program, we offer AMMC members, exhibition development training and networking workshops across Australia.
The workshops engage regional and remote venues in the creation of content for the national travelling exhibition and enable regional venues to share their stories. The project is being developed in 2019, with the display ready to tour interested venues in 2020. Please see project timeline below.
If you’re interested in submitting a story for the display, please register to attend one of the upcoming workshops or contact the project coordinator, Sabina Escobar at email@example.com
Submissions are open until 30 September 2019
Venue: Richmond Room, 11 Regatta Avenue, Ballina, NSW
Time: 10am to 3pm.
Venue: South Australian Maritime Museum, Lipson Street, Port Adelaide, SA 5015
Time: 10am to 3pm
Venue: Celia Little Room, Mission to Seafarers, 717 Flinders Street, VIC 3008
Time: 10am to 3pm
The workshops are FREE to attend, morning tea and lunch provided. We hope to see you all there!
The aim of the workshops is to invite AMMC members to create and submit content for the travelling exhibition. The Museum and AMMC plan is to enable regional museums and local heritage organisations to share these remarkable stories with a national audience.
The workshops will finish with a State Wrap, where attendees are invited to deliver a short presentation on activities or programs in which they are involved.
