AMaGA Victoria has gone international! Team members began delivering capacity-building workshops for representatives of cultural organisations in Timor-Leste. The Victorian Government has partnered with Timor-Leste’s Government since 2002, providing training and support in skill development for public service museum staff. There will be a total of six workshops delivered between October 2021 and January 2022 with content covering museum best practices in collection management, collections care, object handing and labelling, digitisation and cataloguing. The program has been developed by Whole of Victorian Government Timor-Leste Program in partnership with Creative Victoria and in consultation with the National Directorate for Museums and Libraries in Timor-Leste’s Secretariat of State for Arts and Culture.
