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 email@example.com.

ENVi Silver Linings 7: The good, the bad and the ugly
Thu 10 Dec, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
2020 was the year that kept on giving. Never in our wildest dreams did any of us think it might work out like this one. Bushfires, Megxit, Brexit, impeachment, Parasite, no Summer Olympics, #BlackLivesMatter (still), #I’mSpeaking, Zoom, #DontDateADaryl, NASA-SpaceX, murder hornets, #DonutDay, Twitter hacks, no-Vic Footy, Beirut explosion Vincent Namatjira won the Archibald Prize and you-know-what. We lost RBG, Helen Reddy, Eddie Van Halen, Chadwick Boseman, Susan Ryan, Kim Jong Un, Kobe Bryant, Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Lewis, Olivia de Havilland, Kelly Preston, Jerry Stiller, Kirk Douglas, Fred Willard, Jackie Stalone and Ennio Morricone (to name just a few).
Normally at this time of year ENVi would host ‘Travellers Tales’, but that didn’t work out. So instead, we’re hosting a round table for our last Silver Linings program.
We have lined up a few guests to tell us their good, the bad and the ugly of 2020 and get the conversation rolling.
- Emma Fellows-Cooke, Education Program Leader at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum
- Stephanie Rosestone, Engagement, Learning and Programs Manager at National Wool Museum
Come along and share your good, bad and ugly for 2020 too.
