In March 2019, Volunteering Tasmania commenced a project with Arts Tasmania around safeguarding volunteering for the small museums and art collections throughout the state.
The purpose of this project is to work with Arts Tasmania in surveying all participating small museums and collections, tailoring information resources and a workshop to enable participants to apply best practice volunteer management strategies into their small museums and collections.
The Hobart Workshop was held on September 27th with 24 participants representing various locations in the South.
Participants enjoyed the information shared, networking, and getting clarity on best practice volunteer management processes.
The Launceston workshop is being held on October 11th at Queen Victoria Museum and Planetarium
