The PGAV has received funding from Creative Victoria's Strategic Investment Fund (Stage 2) to support the public gallery sector on its pathway to recovery from COVID-19.
The Public Gallery Recovery Program will see the PGAV deliver a series of webinars and practical guides to support mental health and wellbeing, supercharge cultural tourism, and increase the digital capabilities of the public gallery sector.
The PGAV has appointed Francesca Valmorbida as Program Manager to deliver this important initiative. Many members will know Francesca from her role as Arts & Culture Policy Advisor with the Municipal Association of Victoria, where she fostered partnerships across local, state and federal government to increase the impact of arts and culture across Victoria.
The Public Gallery Recovery Program will be delivered in February and March 2021.
