Project Details

Project Description

The Cadetship funds Chris Urwin to develop community-led research, repatriation, and exhibition projects in the Museums Victoria First Peoples archaeology collection.

The project aims to: (1) identify collections with high potential for research in partnership with Aboriginal communities; (2) build relationships between the Monash Node, Museums Victoria, researchers, and Aboriginal organisations; (3) develop a major ARC Linkage funding proposal to continue this research. Chris will prepare short collection reports for Aboriginal corporations and blog posts for Museums Victoria’s website.
