This half-day public forum will focus on the complex issues that emerge from the challenge of building new regional art galleries in Victoria for 21st century audiences. Four directors representing art galleries from across the state – Hamilton, Geelong, Shepparton and Sale – will talk frankly of their experience of building, or planning to build, new spaces to meet the needs of their communities and collections. Three industry experts will also provide further context and commentary.
