A number of community panels are being established to provide input and feedback into the content and proposed design of the museum that will open in 2020.
Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said a people-first approach was being adopted to create a landmark museum building and unique visitor experience.
“The community panels will meet up to four times a year and help shape the stories that represent our State, and the way future visitors will experience the museum,” Mr Day said.
“This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the Western Australian museum’s collections and programs, and help us to create a world-class museum.”
People can apply to join the community panels by submitting an entry of up to 100 words outlining the reason why they would like to be considered. Entry forms are available at http://www.museum.wa.gov.au/new-museum
The New Museum Project is on time and budget. The State Government recently invited expressions of interest to design and construct the new building at the Perth Cultural Centre.
