Abstract

The 2014 Innovation Study: Challenges and Opportunities for Australia’s Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums provided 4 key recommendations for future practices in our cultural institutions.

In this talk we use these recommendations as a springboard into future partnerships in the humanities. In particular, we explore the value of creative connections and partnerships across the cultural sector when it comes to non-traditional participatory sites such as hospitals and factories. Importantly, we investigate the breadth and depth of opportunity latent in our diverse regions. This talk will be of interest to those community members wishing to discover new ways of partnering for innovation.

Symposium

This Public Lecture is followed by a symposium on the 10-11 May: Humanities in the Regions / Collaborating with Collecting and Cultural Institutions
