Dustin’s Adventures Down Under

Carly Syms


VIP + Marketing Manager

Earlier this fall, Dustin Growick (Audience Development + Team Lead for Science), has been in Australia speaking at conferences and working with a number of museums to share and model our Museum Hack toolkit of best practices for engaging and retaining new audiences.

His adventures down under first took him to the Queensland Museum in Brisbane, where he spoke to staff, facilitated an audience engagement workshop, and spent time behind-the-scenes exploring their research collections. But you don’t have to take our word for it:

Dustin’s next stop was the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, or TMAG for short. At TMAG Dustin facilitated a series of workshops to help staff reimagine interactive engagement strategies and new ways to interpret their extensive art, maritime, and natural history galleries. And judging from this video, Dustin seemed pretty excited to be there: 

Onward to Perth for the Museums Australia Western Australia (MAWA) conference. Dustin was invited to keynote the symposium (follow along on Twitter here), as well as lead a staff workshop at the Western Australian Maritime Museum.

In a radio interview, Dustin spoke with Claire Nichols of Radio National about selfies, Instagram, and getting new and younger audiences engaged with and excited about museums. Listen to the segment here: https://soundcloud.com/museumhack/dustin-growick-radio-interview-perth-australia

Dustin had an amazing time traveling down under. Check out some of his favorite photos from his trip:
