In 1994, the amalgamation of four organisations resulted in the development of a core representative body for all collecting organisations across the country. From Museums Australia, to Museums and Galleries Australia, and now Australian Museums and Galleries Association, we have provided ongoing support, advice and advocacy for the strengthening and sustainability of museums and galleries.
On 23 August, the WA Branch held a 25th anniversary celebration at the Museum of Perth. There was a fantastic turn out including some well-loved faces from the organisation’s past.
We would like to thank everyone who attended and those who provided us with photographs and stories of their experiences with AMaGA. For the event, a small booklet was made with stories from some of the organisation’s past staff and Committee Members. You can download and read the memories of people such as Sarah Murphy, Brian Shepherd and Greg Wallace.
