It will be held at the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum on Tuesday, 23 May, 2017 from 9.00am - 4.00pm. Morning Tea, Lunch & Afternoon Tea is provided.

The one-day event will cover various aspects of exhibition development including labelling, design and object display, with practical sessions. The workshop will lead to the submission of content for a travelling display on Australia's shipwrecks.

Tuesday 23 May 2017 - 9.00am till 4.00pm

Queenscliffe Maritime Museum, Wharf Street, Queenscliff, VIC 3225

The workshops support regional and remote venues in the creation of content for the national travelling display and enable regional venues to share their shipwreck stories. Stories should be submitted by July 2017, and the display will be ready to tour by early 2018.

If you are interested in submitting a shipwreck story to the display, please register to attend one of the upcoming workshops by contacting;

The ANMM and the AMMC are working together to develop content for the graphic panel display, Submerged: stories of Australia’s shipwrecks. In an innovative international first, content for the display will be developed by YOU, the AMMC Membership, and merged into a nationally touring display by the ANMM. AMMC Members are introduced to the project at a series of workshops and given instruction on how to submit stories via the AMMC website for review.

ANMM is interested in producing a display that highlights Australian shipwrecks and increases public outreach. This collaborative project supports the AMMC in forging strong links with its current membership and extending its outreach to include additional members.

ANMM submitted an application to the Visions of Australia-Development program in October of 2016. A number of AMMC Member institutions contributed letters of support for the application.  The application was successful and provides for development of the project in 2017.
