The Regional Digitisation Project is a digitisation initiative delivered by AMaGA Victoria and made possible by the support of Creative Victoria. The Project is designed to provide regional organisations with facilitated on-site training and digitisation assistance.

  • have 4+ volunteers or staff willing to participate in training
  • complete the intensive training during the period of February 2022 to December 2022

Your organisation must have an accessible onsite collection and reasonable space to set up a temporary photography studio. Internet access would be valuable but not essential.
