Regional Digitisation and the Collection and Stories Project In 2018 Museum and Galleries of NSW partnered with Create Infrastructure NSW and seven LGAs to develop a prototype website to profile and promote regional-based museums, galleries, Aboriginal cultural centres and keeping place collections. Called Collections and Stories, the prototype was developed to inform the planning and costing of a whole-of-sector approach to fund and digitise cultural collections that are held regionally throughout NSW.
It is envisaged that the roll-out of a regional digitisation program would establish regional hubs with staff, equipment and space to undertake the work of documenting, assessing and digitising locally-held collections. This includes collections managed by both paid and volunteer organisations.To hear more about regional digitisation and see the Collections and Stories prototype you are invited to attend a presentation to be given by M&G NSW’s Collections and Stories Project Manager, Kate Gahan, at the William Dawes Room, Merimbula RSL Club,
