Alec Coles, CEO of Western Australian Museum, is among three keynote speakers who have joined the list of presenters in the Museums Australia (NSW) symposium Place, Space, and Identity: New Directions for NSW Museums, 18-19 A....In his presentation, Renaissance, Reformation and Reinventing the Wheel: Seeking an Integrated Solution to Museum Provision, Alec will draw on his experiences in the UK and particularly the evolution, development of the Renaissance in the Regions program, to consider the relationships between national, state, regional and local museums; between public and private museums; between the volunteer and professional curators. How can these work best without turf-wars, duplication or jealousy? What are the structures that can enhance provision - and which get in the way? And as we invent and reinvent our structures, does anyone remember about the public?
