Workshop – Hobart 9-10 February 2017: National Travelling Exhibitions

Workshop – Hobart 9-10 February 2017: National Travelling Exhibitions

The AMMC began a collaboration with the Australian National Maritime Museum in 2013 to develop travelling exhibitions suitable for both large and small exhibition spaces. The first successful exhibition was ‘War at Sea’ which was presented both as a full-scale travelling exhibition for major maritime museums and as a flat-pack exhibition for smaller institutions, libraries and clubs.

The concept has proved popular and the AMMC and ANMM are continuing the collaboration with the aim, over time, of creating a small bank of travelling exhibitions. The aim is to develop the exhibitions so that they will include objects from local collections to make the exhibitions even more relevant to individual museums.

The next AMMC Regional Workshop in Hobart on 9-10 February 2017 will explore this concept with AMMC delegates.
