INSITE magazine is about the people and stories that together make up our diverse Victorian museum and gallery community. With interviews, articles, and industry news, it is essential reading for all staff and volunteers in the sector.
This issue is on the theme ‘Voice’ and features articles on voices that are being heard and those that are striving to be fully represented in our museums and galleries. Articles include imagining voice visually, the limitations of white feminism in the arts, the representation of women’s stories in collections and exhibitions, Melbourne’s multicultural museums sector, The Clear Expectations Guidelines, and reaching under represented audiences through partnership.
Other items in this issue provide information about storage management, the upcoming Victorian Museum Awards, the Victorian Museums and Galleries Forum, and the Museum News and Branch News sections that will bring you up-to-date with sector information.
