To fill the gaps left by the recent cancellation of face-to-face training and events AMaGA Victoria is working in partnership with the National Office to provide a series of online webinars, workshops and tutorials. We are in the process of converting  previously scheduled in person events to digital platforms, whilst introducing a series of more responsive events. All events will be added to this page as they are confirmed.

Whilst the AMaGA Vic team is working remotely, we  are contactable via email. If you have any events / PD questions, concerns or requests please email

For any questions regarding Victorian Collections workshops please contact:
