SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT 2017
In June 2017, 61 members of South Australia's public gallery sector got together for the first time (the first time in living memory at least.)
This half-day Forum was presented jointly by Regional Galleries Association of SA and Museums and Galleries (SA)
South Australia has a diverse ecology of not-for-profit public galleries of varying size, management structure, audience and charter, but despite the differences, there is much in common.
Until now, there has been little opportunity to connect, collaborate, share and discuss industry information and issues.
This forum brought us together for networking, knowledge sharing and inspiration to build our capacity to deliver rich cultural experiences to our communities, whoever they may be.
Overwhelmingly, we agreed to stay connected and work together!
