Tynan Waring, Indigenous Visitor Services Host at the National Museum of Australia, spent three weeks behind the scenes at the British Museum while the Encounters sister exhibition, Indigenous Australia: enduring civilisation was on show. In this video, Tynan shares his experience of visiting the British Museum.
Interested in following in Tynan's footsteps? The National Museum of Australia, in partnership with The Prince's Charities Australia, has launched the Encounters Indigenous Scholarship Program.
Encounters scholarships will enable six young Indigenous cultural workers from communities around the country to participate in an intensive three-month scholarship program in 2016. This unique program will enable the successful participants to spend time at the National Museum of Australia, Canberra, as well as The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, London, and make extended visits to the British Museum, Oxford and Cambridge universities and the University of London.
