‘Connecting with yourcommunity through publicprograms’ was the theme of aworkshop for regional museumworkers held at Dungog NSWlate last year. Part of thePowerhouse Museum’sregional services program, thishands-on workshop coincidedwith the Dungog launch of
Works wonders 
, a travellingexhibition developed by thePowerhouse in collaborationwith regional museums andhistorical societies.Increasingly museums arelooking beyond consolidatingand presenting theircollections, to buildingaudiences through a specialfocus on school children andthe local community. Regionalmuseums are uniquelypositioned to be a hub forexciting collaborations, thoughmay lack the framework toknow where to start. Thisworkshop attractedparticipants from diverseinstitutions, such as historichomes, galleries andmuseums, eager to developand share their skills with otherworkers from the region.To find out more about theregional services programcontact freecall 1800 882 092or (02) 9217 0220.From Boggabilla in the farnorth to Moruya in the south,Museum staff have beentravelling to schoolsthroughout the state to gathermaterial for our 125thAnniversary Time Capsule. Thisproject honours the Museum’sconnection to education byinviting a selection of schools,also established in 1879, tocontribute to a time capsule.The time capsule project isdesigned to encouragestudents to think about whatthey value. Museum educators,curators and conservatorshave been visiting schools tohelp them collect or make, andthen safely pack, the itemsthey select.Late last year SoundHousemanager Peter Mahony and Ivisited one of the schoolsinvolved in the project,Boggabilla Central School.Boggabilla is in fact so closeto the Queensland border itruns on Queensland time (notdaylight saving time, whichsaved us an hour on the driveup from Moree). Part of theschool’s contribution to thetime capsule will be digitalrecordings of the studentsspeaking in the local Kamilaroilanguage, which is part of theirstudies.Other schools contributing tothe time capsule areCanterbury Public School,Castle Hill Public School,Conargo Public School,Cooranbong Public School,Iluka Public School, Lord HoweIsland Central School, LouthPublic School, Moruya PublicSchool, St Aloysius College,Sydney, Waverley PublicSchool and Yass Public School.The time capsule, which hasbeen designed by renownedAustralian designer andarchitect Tom Kovac, will besuspended in the Museumlater this year. In 75 years it willbe opened to celebrate theMuseum’s 200th anniversary!
