It's all GLAM to us!
The role of Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums in supporting the LGBTIQ community
To coincide with RMIT’s Pride Week on 13-17 May and IDAHOBIT, ALIA RAIS (Vic) invite you to join us to hear from industry leaders dedicated to driving representation and inclusion of the LGBTIQA+ community in their practice.
Queering the GLAM sector: Out of the library, into the archives, and back again.
Clare O’Hanlon is a librarian by day and archivist at the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives (ALGA). Clare will discuss the importance of independent community based archives and how the GLAM industry can get involved.
Queering Museums: The LGBTIQA+ Advisory Group at Museums Victoria.
Hayley Webster is the Manager, Library at Museums Victoria and a Lead Contact for Museums Victoria’s LGBTIQA+ Advisory Group. Hayley will talk about issues relating to queer representation in museums, attempts to improve representation at Museums Victoria, and the work that the museum’s LGBTIQA+ Advisory Group is doing to support workplace inclusion.
A Q&A, networking and light refreshments will follow the talks.
