Careers in Heritage

This FREE event for senior high school and university students will introduce them to the many and varied careers in arts and heritage. If you want to find out more about what it takes to become a curator, registrar, conservator, exhibitions developer, museum educator, or any other role in arts and heritage, then this is the event for you!
