Back by popular demand, ENVI presents Travellers’ Tales 2018, our annual end of year celebration.
Join us for some vicarious travel and an insider’s view of museum collections and storytelling. These intrepid travellers are very familiar with the wonders of the back-of-house of museums.
Presentations will be followed by an exclusive viewing of the exhibition Mandela My Life which provides a fascinating journey through Mandela’s early life, activism, incarceration and then emergence as the first black president of South Africa. There will be plenty to discuss over a glass of wine and a nibble.
This year’s travellers are:
- Kimberley Moulton is a Yorta Yorta woman writer, curator and currently Senior Curator, South Eastern Aboriginal Collections at Museums Victoria. Kimberley is the Museums Victoria co-curator for the world touring exhibition Mandela My Life, the official exhibition celebrating the life of Nelson Mandela. Kimberley and the Museums Victoria team worked closely with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and producers iEC exhibitions and TEG Live in the development of the exhibition, traveling to South Africa several times in the process.
- Rachael Cottle works at the Chinese Museum and is a Volunteer Assistant Curator at Museums Victoria. In July 2017 Rachael participated in the Open Palace Program in England. The program is an opportunity for emerging museum professionals to spend twenty days traveling throughout England, visiting palaces, museums and heritage sites gaining skills and guidance from experts in the field. Rachael will share her travel experiences with a particular focus on education in museums.
