Museum of Me – call for submissions

Museum of Me is an upcoming RMIT Gallery online student exhibition showcasing creativity across the university. The exhibition will be launched on 19 October.

RMIT students are being invited to participate in curating an exhibition about themselves, submitting photos, music, creative writing, drawings, soundscapes, or videos they have created this year.

Students are also asked to select creative works from the public domain, as well as RMIT’s very own Cultural Collections (RMIT Design ArchivesAFI Research CollectionRMIT Art Collection), that  have provided a jolt of inspiration, or simply brought joy.   

The exhibition is completely student run – a creative team of RMIT Culture interns are responsible for Museum of Me’s design, curation, promotion and an accompanying digital publication.

According to Helen Rayment, Galleries Curator, many of the organisational skills required in developing and project managing an online exhibition are exactly what is required when one is organising a physical show. A support creative team with Rayment, Engagement Manager Dr Evelyn Tsitas and Collections and Archives Manager Elizabeth Marsden will supervise the interns and mentor them in the curatorial and design process of putting on, promoting and documenting an exhibition.

“RMIT Gallery will be using the platform of its website to showcase a series of online exhibitions developed by students as part of RMIT Culture’s Creative Industry Internships Program,” Rayment said.

“Our website is the gallery and it’s an ideal place for sharing our skills and mentoring the next generation of curators, engagement managers and designers.”
