AMaGA NT is a small committee of dedicated museum and gallery professionals and practitioners who volunteer their time to support AMaGA Territory members and represent Territory practitioners and volunteers to the national association. In its work, the committee strives to enhance the value of Australia’s collections, public programs and stories, and believes this is best achieved by sharing knowledge, developing skills, inspiring innovation and providing leadership in protecting and promoting our arts and cultural heritage.

To decide what kind of activities would benefit our members, we’d love your feedback on how we can support the work you do in the sector. What kind of professional development activities would be of most benefit to your work? We’d also like to social activities to help us get to know each other better, share ideas, and just enjoy the company of others who are also passionate about museums. Let us know if you have any ideas, share your thoughts here: NTBranch@AMaGA.org.au
Social event: March/April 2020. Following the success of the recent Caring for Photographs workshop, we will visit a photographic archive and enjoy dinner together afterwards. Details to follow.
