Each year the AMaGA National Conference attracts over 450 national and international delegates. They converge to:

  • engage with projects and research.
  • share innovations and creativity.
  • participate in practical workshops.
  • attend offsite tours around Perth and WA.
  • network at formal and informal social activities.

There are thousands of paid and unpaid workers who provide the facility and opportunity for Australian's to discover, learn, reflect and connect to self, our place, community and country through caring for your cultural and creative heritage. 

These museum, gallery and cultural workers range from Directors of national institutions to unpaid volunteers in every community across Australia. Larger organisations may find it within their budget to send staff to conferences, however many small organisations operate on donations and grant funding alone.

In fact, the majority of AMaGA members operate on less than $10,000 annually. Attending an interstate conference is simply outside their means, though most would jump at the chance.

You can help.

To ensure the National Conference is accessible to as many as possibly, a “Conference Inclusion Fund” has been established.

Donations to the Fund are distributed to potential delegates across the country to overcome the economic and geographical barriers to attending their premier networking opportunity. Consequently the conversations are enriched and a greater diversity of perspectives and experience is presented. 

How will my donation be spent?

Australia is a vast and sometimes challenging land; funds donated are used to cover registrations, travel and accommodation costs for eligible delegates. It is estimated that $1,000 is needed to cover costs for one individual. 

What do I get? 

  • Company logo and acknowledgement on the Conference website (sponsor and program pages) with a link to your website. 
  • a 25-word company profile in the Conference app. 
  • all donations to the Conference Inclusion Fund are tax deductable. 

I want to know more.
