Event description


This program is an introduction to our new secondary Collection Close-Up program. It will feature highlights from the collections of missionaries George and Robina Arnott-Rogers, from the internationally significant Chinese Processional Assemblage, and from the Chinese temple collection. Together these collections cover a period from approximately 1850-1914, a period of great change in China and in Australia. They are a perfect platform for the Victorian cross-curricular priority “Asia and Australia’s Engagement with Asia” and a discussion of cultural transfer to and from Asia around the emergence of the Republic of China. The Gold Museum Education Officer will lead you on an exclusive ‘walking conversation’ through selected Collection highlights to explore how and why these objects were collected, how and why they came to be in the collection of the Gold Museum, and what it means to hold and care for these objects today. The aim is that students and teachers come away with an increased understanding of the diversity of our region, the role cultural heritage material plays in understanding and connecting to a community and an appreciation for the significance of The Chinese Collections.

A letter of professional learning can be emailed to participants on request.

Training will be delivered through the DET WebEx platform.
