Congratulations to all the NSW Central West nominees in these highly competitive awards including Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Orange Regional Gallery, Orange Regional Museum, Museums Bathurst and Eugowra Historical Museum and Bushranger Centre.
The IMAGinE Awards highlight the resilience, innovation and creativity of museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural spaces and recognise the people who work in them.
IMAGinE celebrates all institutions and pays homage to those organisations run by volunteers, with limited budgets and minimal resources. These Awards offer a unique opportunity for museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural spaces in NSW to advocate, promote their achievements and raise their profile within the sector and the broader community.
