JOIN A SERIES OF SEMINARS ABOUT COLLECTING run by Museums Victoria
As the numbers in Victoria reduce, we turn our thoughts to the next three-part lecture series, ‘Collecting the Curve‘, which starts on September 16. I do hope you can join us as our experts bring you the work-in-progress documenting the pandemic in Victoria for the state heritage collection. What are they collecting and why? How are they collecting? What are the complications of documenting this constantly changing and evolving situation?
The first lecture, Flattening the Curve reveals how the museum is documenting the cutting edge of science, medicine, and governance in keeping Victoria safe. From the tireless work of research and health professionals in diagnosis and treatment to the application and communication of policies, such as mandatory masks and stage 4 curfew our experts will reveal the objects that will tell the story for future generations. Register via link below.
Collecting the Curve is a contemporary collecting project which documents the experience of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Victorian community. In this three-part lecture series, meet the museum experts at the frontline of the project as they reveal the objects, images and stories collected.
Looking forward to seeing you at a lecture soon,
