Practical Tips and Tricks from Trudie Leigo

Using the collection at Gympie Bone Museum this two day workshop will include practical tips and tricks on packing your work securely, transporting it and making sure it is set up properly at the other end.

Trudie Leigo, professional curator and journalist, will deliver two days of practical hands-on help in how to tour an exhibition and:
• Have an understanding that touring projects are scaleable and can be targeted at different types of venues.
• Have an understanding of the work involved and the steps that need to take place to successfully complete a touring project.
• Have a list of industry resources and contacts to help them with future projects.

There’s no better time to tour your work

With the current boom in regional and rural tourism there is no better time to consider touring your work to galleries and museums around the country. Feature exhibitions are big drawcards to cultural institutions and another reason for tourists and locals to visit again and again.

This workshop will also deliver great advice to professionals working in those cultural institutions on how to source and market touring exhibitions to your best advantage. It is vitally important that GLAM professionals and creatives are on the same page working towards a common goal for the best chance at success together. You never know, you may discover your next big event right here in the room with you.

Places are strictly limited to 12 so you will have plenty of time for questions and one-on-one time with Trudie.

Participants will need to be computer literate and be able to use Microsoft Office, the internet, email and social media.

This project is sponsored by the Regional Arts Development Fund and is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Gympie Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

Also sponsored by the Community Bank Gympie & District – Bendigo Bank.
