2014 Heritage Leaders Workshop

The 2014 Heritage Leaders workshop was the first initiative of the Q ANZAC 100 program for the Queensland heritage sector and volunteers.

Queensland's heritage leaders came together to learn new skills, collaborate on ideas, and share their insights and plans for commemorating the centenary of the First World War and Anzac.

The Heritage Leaders Workshop assisted representatives from public libraries, community museums, historical organisations, galleries, RSLs and educational institutions in developing their own plans for centenary commemorations. The workshop also presented opportunities for groups to work in partnership with the Q ANZAC 100 program over the next four years.

A diverse Program of keynote speakers, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, facilitated meetings and networking events immersed, stimulated and challenged participants over the three day event.
