10 objects — 10 stories: celebrating community collections
This exhibition presents a remarkable range of objects and their stories from small museums around the state and highlights the role that small museums play as custodians and storytellers of Tasmania’s unique cultural heritage.
Arts Tasmania’s Roving Curators Melissa Smith and Veronica Macno will speak about their role in supporting community museums, history groups and organisations on projects designed to improve best practice in the preservation of our cultural heritage.
The Curators and representatives from some of the small museums involved in the exhibition will talk about some of the treasures on display and their associated tales.
