What an interesting and informative weekend. Speakers encouraging us to think outside the square, museum staff and volunteers sharing and exchanging ideas as well as rediscovering some of Brisbane, Queensland and Australia’s national treasures.

Attendance at the 2013 SEQ Small Museum’s Conference, run this year by the Brisbane Living Heritage Network, enabled me to meet, interact and attend a presentation given by my Mentor, Peter Connell, Director of the Mercy Heritage Centre, before taking up my two week MAGSQ Mentorship placement this week.

The Workshop, ‘ Exhibition Communication: Practical Tips for Writing Text Panels’ presented by Peter Connell was of particular interest to me, providing basic tips and standards developed for producing text panels and labels for exhibitions.

I’m very much looking forward to commencing my placement in the beautifully restored museum.

M&GSQ’s 2013 Mentorship, Exchange and Fellowship Program is funded by Arts Queensland through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). RADF is a joint Queensland Government and Local Government partnership to support local arts and culture.
