Museum Victoria, the National Gallery of
Victoria and the Public Record Office Victoria, are custodians of
important state collections acquired and developed over nearly
160 years and valued at around $5 billion. These collections
are generally well managed despite gaps in the agencies’ collection
management policy and procedure frameworks. However, there are
systemic issues requiring attention with respect to collection
storage, gaps in collection documentation, inadequate performance
reporting on collection management and the need to make collections
more accessible online.
Arts Victoria, a division of the Department of Premier and
Cabinet, is responsible for advising and supporting the Minister
for the Arts on arts policy, and for providing support and
oversight of state-owned arts and cultural agencies. It needs to
more purposefully lead and oversight the agencies to address these
systemic issues and realise government priorities.
