The History Trust is excited to announce that Angaston & Penrice Historical Society and the Mount Torrens and District Community Association are the first two organisations to join the Museums and Collections (MaC) program. Both quickly put their hands up to complete the MaC membership process. Angaston & Penrice Historical Society is well established in managing archival and object collections and presenting the Doddridge Blacksmith Shop as a museum and for tours. Mount Torrens is in the process of establishing a community archives and interested in pursuing ways to make their collections accessible in digital formats. Both organisations are eligible to apply for a MaC project grant this year and we wish them every success.
The MaC program is relevant to South Australian community museums and collecting organisations at whatever stage of their development. Community groups that would like to talk about MaC membership are very welcome to contact us.
Among many activities, Angaston & Penrice Historical Society maintains the Doddridge Blacksmith Shop.
