Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) is a not-for-profit, non-government national association and peak advocacy body representing museums and galleries throughout Australia.
AMaGA Western Australia is the Perth-based branch that looks after museums, galleries and cultural workers in Western Australia. We provide professional services and training to staff, volunteers and those passionate for cultural and creative collections to develop and sustain the over 400 museums and galleries throughout WA. We advocate on behalf of the sector to communicate the value of museums and galleries, raise professional standards, inform policy and promote ethical practice.
The WA branch is governed by a Committee, elected by members of AMaGA Western Australia, that determines the operational and financial direction of the branch. This is defined by the AMaGA Western Australia By-Laws and operates under the AMaGA Constitution and Model Rules.
