Pre-contact, historic and contemporary artefacts, artworks and photographs make up the Koorie Heritage Trust’s curatorial collection – unique in its focus on south-eastern indigenous culture.
The Collection is housed at the Trust’s Cultural Centre on the corner of Little Lonsdale Street and King Street, Melbourne.
One of the primary objectives of the Trust is to provide real opportunities for Koorie youth to be involved in their culture – through events, specific projects or traineeships.
This year the Trust has announced the creation of a new position – a three-year Curatorial Cadetship, made possible by the generosity of Vicki, Sarah, Julian and Tristan Standish. A young Koorie person will now be able to have hands-on training at the Trust while completing a Masters at University.
The three-year education path will include:
-Graduate Certificate of Museum Studies
-Graduate Diploma of Museum Studies
-Master of Cultural Heritage.
