2020 Museums and Collections Projects Program – new projects now available

The 2020 Projects List will be available via the Museums and Collections Projects Program (MCPP) website from Friday 28 February.

The projects are ideal for students, alumni and other interested individuals who are keen to work behind the scenes with the University's museums and cultural collections. On offer are collection management, curatorial and public program focused projects. These projects are designed to provide engaging and specialised experiences that have real value for participants through the acquisition of new vocational skills and professional development.

Engaging with a wide range of the University’s museums and collections, the projects offered this year include cataloguing, research and interpretation, preventative conservation, public programs, curation and exhibition development. In addition to providing a unique and enriching experience for participants, the projects also benefit the cultural collections by contributing to their long-term management ensuring they remain an accessible, relevant and dynamic resource for the University and wider community.
