cardiShorts episode 5 – Shane Hughes

While cardiParties are on hold due to the lockdown, we have begun to reach out to our GLAM community with cardiShorts. Videos (5-10mins) taken by a member of our community, either working from home, or going in to work, sharing an aspect of their work during COVID-19.

In this episode Shane Hughes, Keeper, Live Exhibits at Melbourne Museum, introduces us to the different animals, back of house Live Exhibits storage areas and the Forest Gallery at Melbourne Museum.

cardiShorts episode 4 – Bentley Bird

While cardiParties are on hold due to the lockdown, we have begun to reach out to our GLAM community with cardiShorts. Videos (5-10mins) taken by a member of our community, either working from home, or going in to work, sharing an aspect of their work during COVID-19.

Bentley Bird is an Ornithology Museum Specialist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. In this episode, Bentley shares what her job was before lockdown (data management, pest management, conservation projects, collection access, curatorial projects); and what her job is like now while she works from home cleaning up specimen data including geo-referencing. Big thank you to Bentley for this interesting insight into the work of an Ornithology Museum Specialist. We miss you at Melbourne Museum. Stay safe and all the best to you and your family.

cardiShorts episode 3 – RAAF Museum

While cardiParties are on hold due to the lockdown, we have begun to reach out to our GLAM community with cardiShorts. Videos (5-10mins) taken by a member of our community, either working from home, or going in to work, sharing an aspect of their work during COVID-19.

In this episode Imogen Telfer, Air Force Imagery Archive Curator at RAAF Museum, introduces us to the RAAF Museum exhibitions in a virtual tour. Please note that as the video was taken indoors in large open spaces and outside the RAAF Museum building, the ambient sounds occasionally overlap Imogen’s presentation.

We were planning a cardiParty with Imogen before lockdown which we sadly had to cancel. Thanks for sharing this cardiShort Imogen, it’s a wonderful substitute for a cardiParty but I hope we can organise an event at RAAF Museum sometime in the future!

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.

Enjoy.

Melbourne newCardigan cardiParty

Recorded Live

Our June Melbourne cardiParty was hosted by Archie Boulter, a Melbourne-based entrepreneur and LGBTIQA+ advocate, who shared their experiences creating “queer spaces” within the GLAM sector. Archie  discussed their recent efforts co-leading the establishment of LGBTIQA+ Advisory Groups across Museums Victoria (Melbourne Museum, Immigration Museum & Scienceworks), as well as co-founding the social enterprise called Queer Town, which was selected to take part in the Foundry658 Accelerator program, run by ACMI and the State Library.
