MGA Indigenous Roadmap

MGA Indigenous Roadmap – Audit Report

The Museums Galleries Australia Indigenous Roadmap project is an initiative to facilitate discussion on how best to advance the participation and representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in museums and galleries. 

The project aims to develop the Museums Galleries Australia Indigenous 10-Year Roadmap. This document will map out a plan for Indigenous engagement and employment over the next 10 years. 

This project will be completed by Terri Janke and Company for Museums Galleries Australia. 

The MGA writes:

“We produced an audit report through gathering quantitative data via online surveys. There were 4 separate surveys that were conducted:
  1. The Organisation Survey, 54 questions, with 73 responses in total;

  2. Individual 1. Professionals working in the museum & gallery sector, 31 questions with 83 valid responses in total;

  3. Individual 2. Indigenous Stakeholders, not-working in the museum/gallery sector, 24 questions with 33 responses in total;

  4. Individual 3. Visitors, non-Indigenous, not-working in the museum/gallery sector, 20 questions with 25 responses in total.

From the data collected, themes became apparent. These themes enabled us to determined some of the shortcomings that can be improved upon.
