cardiCast episode 72 – Megan Cassar

In this episode of cardiCast, Megan Cassar, Project Manager, Exhibitions at the National Communications Museum shares what it has been like to manage the development of a new museum due to open in 2022 during a pandemic. Megan also reflects on how she started out as a forensic photography student at RMIT, moved into publishing textbooks, then volunteered at Melbourne Museum which led to working as an Operations Coordinator for the Pauline Gandel Children’s Gallery, then later Project Managing the Exhibition Productions team at Museums Victoria, moving in to work as a Production Coordinator at the Science Gallery at University of Melbourne, then finally her current role at the National Communications Museum. Megan also discussed how work in her field is often contract based, which is always difficult in uncertain times that we are living in. Perhaps a lesson learned from Megan is to follow your passion and see where it takes you.

We hope you’re enjoying this series of cardiCast.

cardiCast Reprise – COASIT Italian Museum

Our August cardiParty was at the wonderful Chinese Museum where we had a fabulous tour and talk about the current exhibition.

However, due to technical difficulties we couldn’t record the event on the night (never fear, we will have an interview with the Curator, Ethel Villafranca, very soon) but as we were at the Chinese Museum some of us couldn’t help but recall the Italian Museum we visited oh so long ago now in 2016.

So, instead of the recording of our August cardiParty, we invite you to listen, or refresh your memory, to our awesome cardiParty at the Museo Italiano.
