Orange Regional Museum is seeking an experienced and collaborative curator to undertake the research and facilitation of a long-term exhibition exploring the history of Orange and district.
Taking inspiration from the British Museum’s History of the World in 100 Objects, the exhibition will highlight objects and intangible cultural heritage material that exemplifies or are linked to significant narratives of the region.
The exhibition will explore the history of the region and its people through objects and stories, presenting multiple interpretations for each object with the aim of surprising and challenging visitors, providing them with alternative perspectives alongside the established narrative.
Linking content to education requirements and providing fresh and engaging approaches to museum-based story-telling, the exhibition will place the audience and their interaction with the content at the centre of the experience.
During the project the exhibition curator will be required to liaise with a cross-section of the community, seeking authentic and varied perspectives, build and strengthen relationships, and discover objects and stories to furnish the exhibition. Museum staff will work alongside the exhibition curator to have input, provide assistance and resources where required. The exhibition is due to open in late March 2020.

The closing date for the submission of proposals is Monday 5 August 2019 at 5pm.
