  • MAEdQ PD Event: What do Teachers want from Museum Spaces?

    One of the primary purposes of museums is to share their collections, stories and knowledge with their local communities. Encouraged by the new curriculum, many teachers are keen to utilise museums but cannot do so unless museums work with them to give them what they want. This panel discussion will enable museum workers to talk to teachers directly and question them about their requirements and desires, and learn how to extensively broaden your museum’s public engagement by designing education programs that hit the mark.
    When: Wednesday 22 July 2015, 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm 
    Where: St Laurence’s College, Primary Library
    Cost: Gold coin donation appreciated
    More information:

    Please RSVP by Friday  17 July 2015 via the website or email your name, organisation and contact details to Museums Australia Education Queensland network at

  • BUNDABERG - workshops to focus on salvaging flood damaged collections (press release follows- apologies for cross postings)

    State Library of Queensland and the Bundaberg Regional Library Service are offering free ‘hands on’ workshops for members of the community impacted by the floods, to demonstrate basic ways to salvage water damaged items and collections.

    The workshop will give simple home based solutions for preserving books, documents, photographs, films, tapes, videos, cassettes and digital media.

    Instruction will include simple ways to clean and dry the flood affected collections using readily available materials like spray or squeegee bottles, absorbent papers, drying lines, tables and pedestal fans

    Two (2) half day workshops will be conducted on Friday 22nd February 2013 at the Woongarra Street training centre (next to the library).

    Participants are encouraged to bring one item to the workshop where professional advice can be given for restoration.

    Bundaberg Regional Council’s Venues portfolio spokesperson, Cr. Lynne Forgan said she encouraged residents to bring their water damaged documents and pictures along to the workshop. “I think many people will be surprised at just what can be retrieved or restored through the processes being shown at the workshops,” she said.

    “For many people a lot of these items represent irreplaceable memories and they should take this opportunity to see if they can be salvaged.”

    Bookings are essential.  To make a booking contact Jill Fulcher, Bundaberg library, on 4130 4133.
