cardiParty 2018-10 – Grainger Museum

 Registration is closed for this event
The Grainger Museum – the only purpose-built autobiographical museum in Australia – is home to a unique collection of art, photographs, costumes, music scores and instruments acquired by Percy Grainger, an icon of twentieth century Australian musical culture.

Grainger was Australia’s first world-renowned composer and arranger and a concert pianist of international standing but also an inventor, a folk music collector, a towelling enthusiast, a photographer …

Within the broader Special Collections and Grainger Museum department, the Curate Your Career program is designed to provide insights into careers in Museums and Galleries for Access Melbourne students. Access Melbourne is the University’s domestic equity program, which students can qualify for if they are from a disadvantaged background, rural or regional Victoria, are recognised as an Indigenous Australian, speak English as a second language or come from an underrepresented school, among other criteria. The Curate Your Career program provides a series of informal ‘In Conversation’ sessions with Museum and Gallery professionals with practical guidance and advice on how to compete for jobs and other opportunities in the Museum and Gallery sector.

Tamara Jones, Client Services Officer, will discuss the museum and Percy Grainger and talk about Grainger’s folk music collecting. Chelsea Harris is the creator and Manager of the Curate your Career project, alongside her position as the Exhibitions Marketing and Events Coordinator for Special Collections at the Grainger Museum at the University of Melbourne. Chelsea will discuss the Curate Your Career program.

Places strictly limited.
