PGAV partners with AMaGA Victoria to deliver Victorian Museums and Galleries Awards in 2023

Thursday April 20th, 2023

Australian Museums and Galleries Association Victoria (AMaGA Victoria) and Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) are excited to announce they are partnering on the delivery of the 2023 Victorian Museums and Galleries Awards. 

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the prestigious Victorian Museums and Galleries Awards. Since its inception, this annual event recognises outstanding achievements within the Victorian museum, gallery, and community collecting sector.

In 2023, the Victorian Museums and Galleries Awards will take on a fresh look and feel as a result of the new partnership. AMaGA Victoria and PGAV have collaborated on a new visual design and renewed Awards categories to recognise and commend diversity and innovation within the sector.

New Awards in 2023 include First Nations Project of the Year – celebrating the sector’s commitment to raising awareness of First Peoples art and culture and progressing reconciliation, Treaty and Voice; Change-maker of the Year – recognising those who are pushing boundaries; and a dedicated Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nominations for the 2023 Awards are now open and will close on 3 July. Winners will be announced at a gala ceremony to be held in October at ACMI. Further information, visit: pgav.org.au/Awards~10058
