Journeys (working title) is a project being undertaken in 2022 by the Mid North Coast Chapter of Museums and Galleries Australia. The project focuses on stories about immigration, travel including tourism, and transport and connects moveable cultural heritage collections to historic places on the Mid North Coast including those on the State Heritage Register.

Traditionally museums were thought of as places to collect, care for, display and interpret objects. While valid in many ways, this view omits the human element of museums. An alternative approach is to think of museums as places that collate and share human experiences.

The purpose of this project is to share more of our region’s rich heritage and history through interactive online and physical storytelling initiatives. It will connect and reconnect movable cultural heritage items and collections with their associated historic places and events within a Journeys theme using contemporary storytelling techniques and platforms such as a website, podcasts and social media posts on both Facebook and Instagram. One of the key goals of this project is to engage new and expanded audiences, particularly young people.

This project will actively engage participants through stimulating online exhibitions and interactive storytelling tools, where storytelling is a two-way process. It will use a wide suite  of tools including  social media, podcasts and video. Audiences will be encouraged to not only explore, discover, look and listen, they will be encouraged to share and add their own memories, photographs, comments and experiences
