An invitation for a chat

I’m interested in the history of Museums Australia and I’m attending the national conference in Sydney 21-24 May. If you share this interest, collar me during the breaks and let’s have chat.

My interest in the history was sparked by involvement in the NSW Branch from 2000 to 2012. After a…

Art Hits in Emerald City

#ma2015Syd conference Blog

Tackling a thorny topic

Stephen Fry has written about them. Geoffrey Robertson and Amal Clooney have been to court about them. The debate continues about the Elgin Marbles. The National Gallery of Australia’s dancing Shiva was the object of our local reflections. At the Museums Australia national conference, panellists Michaela Boland from The Australian and respected academics Robyn Sloggett from the University of Melbourne and Donna…

Small museum inspiration at Museums Australia conference

#ma2015syd conference blog

Thanks Paul. Have a look at our Blue website and our Newsletter, Heritage, which you can access through the website. This will tell you who we are and what we are doing. At present we focus on making the Blue Mountains City Council Heritage services more effective for the public. On 25 September we begin our series of political party policy meetings. From the letters from the LIberals and the Minister for Planning (Keneally),there is obviously much to do to get them to understand what heritage is and what needs to be done. Our organisation is a mix of historical associations and museums etc plus individual professionally qualified and experienced museum and heritage people with national and international experience.

Best wishes

I would add that in the Blue Mountains we have a meeting of our members and others on 25 September at which the Shadow Representative for Heritage will speak on the Liberal Heritage policy.
