Green Galleries

Tuesday 27 Feb 2018, 10:30 AM - 4:30 PM

The first session in PGAV’s  2018 Professional Development program Green Galleries  is a one-day seminar and forum in which public gallery employees can gain a stronger understanding of how:

  • Victorian audiences perceive climate change;
  • Public galleries can become leaders in the field of environmental sustainability through new or refurbished infrastructure and programming.

Hear about the latest results from social research into climate change; glean lessons from real gallery case studies; gain insight into government funding programs and information through Sustainability Victoria’s TAKE2 initiative; and lob your infrastructure grenade to a panel of brave industry professionals. Speakers include Guy Abrahams (CLIMARTE), Richard Ennis (Incinerator Gallery), Robert Heather (New England Regional Art Museum), Mim Lowe , Dianna McDonald , Luke Wilkinson (Sustainability Victoria) and Sonja Syre (Denton Corker Marshall).
