2015 is shaping up to be quite the year for this little historical society! The short-list for the 2015 Museums and Galleries National Awards was announced today and we found ourselves among the list not once, but twice!
We're a contender in the Innovation category for Virtual Volunteering and are also in the running in the Interpretation, Learning and Audience Engagement category for our Australian Curriculum Education Resources. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 22 May 2015 at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney.
We were honoured at last year's awards as the Level 1 Permanent Exhibition or Gallery Fitout winner for our Virtual Museum: to be known and distinguished as Carnamah.
Our virtual museum inspired the State Library of WA Foundation to create a virtual exhibition on Western Australia's Freycinet Collection... and we're pleased to reveal that it too is a finalist in this year's awards - in the category that we won last year!
