This event has passed.
Join us for both the AGM (5pm) and the Presentation (6pm).
MMHN is delighted to collaborate with the Royal Historical Society of Victoria (RHSV) in presenting this event which will certainly be of interest to the entire heritage community.
MHNN Patron Dr Kevin Fewster, CBE AM FRSA will present (6pm) following the MMHN AGM (5pm) with a talk on Charting a course – reflections on 35 years at the helm, which will cover his extraordinary 35 year international career in Maritime Museums including Director of Royal Museums Greenwich (RMG), the world’s largest and most visited maritime museum precinct.
Closer to ‘home’, Kevin was the founding Director of the South Australian Maritime Museum; Director of the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM) and of the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney. Kevin will reflect on what are essential elements to consider in a successful maritime museum today and what issues do such cultural institutions face.
