Our people

The People and the Environment program is centred in the National Museum of Australia's curatorial team of the same name, but also draws in staff from across the organisation.

Program members come from a range of backgrounds including curatorship, anthropology, history, archaeology, environmental history, education, art history, art practice, conservation and design.

We share an interest in exploring and communicating with all Australians about how we shape and are shaped by the other-than-human species, landscapes and waterways, built structures and natural forces that make up our physical environments.
