Work with cultural material
Issue Date: February 2019
This unit applies to organisations that hold, research or display cultural material that is not specifically of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin.
The unit deals with elements of cultures and intellectual properties of communities that are represented within Australian collecting institutions or which are held temporarily for display or research purposes. It focuses on the sourcing of information through research and through consultation with community groups, and where relevant working with advisory reference groups.
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to comply with cultural and consultative requirements for sourcing, handling, interpreting and exhibiting cultural materials.
