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.

To participate in the Regional Digitisation Project, you must:

  • be a small to medium-sized collecting organisation*
  • be in a regional area of Victoria (i.e. 1+ hours from Melbourne)
  • have 4+ volunteers or staff willing to participate in training
  • complete the intensive training during the period of February 2022 to December 2022
  • attend an online introductory Information Session via zoom on Monday 21 February 2022 for all those selected to participate

*Please note that State-funded galleries and ex-service organisations are not eligible to apply.

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.

If you have questions about the project, please submit a ticket via the Victorian Collections Helpdesk and a member of the team will assist you.
