Benalla Art Gallery is part of Creative Victoria’s Regional Digitisation Roadshow, a pilot program which will see three regional gallery collections digitised between April and July 2019.  To extend the learnings from this pilot, PGAV Members are invited to attend this one-day professional development event and gain insights into digitising collections. 

Creative Victoria will provide an overview of the Regional Digitisation Roadshow. Benalla Art Gallery will be trialling a large format scanner, the wideTEK Art 36 – designed specifically for scanning fine art. While the NGV’s Conservation team will provide practical advice on condition reporting and cataloguing collection items as part of the digitisation process. This is a unique opportunity to learn about the latest technology and best practice approaches to digitising visual art collections.
