The Minister for the Arts recently announced that the Visions of Australia travelling exhibition program would be transferred from the Office for the Arts to the Australia Council. See the Minister’s media release on the topic.
CAMD wishes to ensure that the Visions of Australia program continues to enable touring of a diverse range of cultural exhibitions across Australia and particularly to regional and remote areas.
CAMD has written to Mr Rupert Myer (Chair, Australia Council Board) and Ms Kathy Keele (CEO, Australia Council) offering CAMD’s assistance in finding ways in which the new Visions panel can draw on the expertise residing in member museums. See Visions Letter Sept 2012.
