Celebrate all we've achieved in 2021 at The Golden Wattle, with a chance to network and catch-up with colleagues over coffee and breakfast. Our Christmas breakfast will have a little added sparkle to celebrate the end of the year. As is tradition, AMaGA will cover the cost of your coffee or beverage as a thank you for your support.


GLAM breakfasts are open to everyone interested in galleries, libraries, archives and museums, so grab a colleague and book yourselves a spot. Free to attend, just pay for your own breakfast.
