CollectionsCare Demonstration Project

The Western Australian Goldfields is home to the first CollectionsCare regional hub. CollectionsCare aims to develop practical skills and knowledge for paid staff and volunteers, to attract new resources for regional collections, and to unlock the educational, economic and cultural potential of collections held in regional communities.

The project has been made possible by support from the Directors of the Myer Foundation, the Collections Council of Australia, Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts and the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

Elaine Labuschagne was appointed as the CollectionsCare Coordinator at the beginning of March 2010, and the hub will be her office at the Boulder Town Hall.

Members of this group can read updates on the progress of CollectionsCare, participate in discussion about models and resources for supporting regional collections, and share stories, experiences and photographs.

If you would like more information about CollectionsCare, please contact Elaine Labuschagne on the details below.

A note to let everyone know that if you are looking for resources published by the former Collections Council of Australia, its website has now expired. Vale CCA.

The good news is that the site has been archived through Pandora. Click HERE to access that location.

Hi all - This grant opportunity looks very relevant for CollectionsCare - whether in WA of elsewhere! (Thanks to the MA Vic e-bulletin for promoting this news.)

Small Grants for Small Rural Communities

The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) is running a small grants program for small rural Australian communities. The program will offer approximately $400,000 a year in grants to benefit people in rural and remote communities.

Currently, preference will be given to projects that support:

• Activities that support education and youth

• Culture, arts, tourism and community heritage

• Communities from areas that are Natural Disaster Declared

• Community infrastructure such as historic community halls

Not-for-profit Organisations can apply for projects and activities that offer clear public benefit for communities living in small rural and remote locations, contributing to their development in social and
community welfare, economic, environmental, health, education or cultural areas.

Grants will be made in amounts up to $5,000. Applications
close 30 September.

It was great to meet you Elaine at the first Significance International workshop in Canberra in November. You wrote a great statement of significance! The work you are doing in Western Australia is very impressive, thanks for giving me an update when you were here. I know that Margaret, Alexis and I are very impressed with how well you've managed the Eastern Goldfields CollectionsCare Region since we (the Collections Council of Australia) were forced to close earlier this year. I'm glad you are finding the CollectionsCare Coordinator resources we prepared so useful and look forward to seeing how they are deployed. I also enjoy reading your CollectionsCare Newsletters - I hope you are able to continue to produce and distribute these widely. As you know CollectionsCare was designed as a nation-wide system of support for collections - regional collections in the first instance. Let's hope it goes from strength to strength!
