Transparent Lab: QM Get involved with #Ask A Curator Day

Today is #Ask A Curator Day and curators at Queensland Museum Southbank, The Workshops Rail Museum and Cobb+Co have been busy answering questions from all over the world – the biggest challenge is answering the questions in less than 140 Characters. Thank-you to all who are participating and if you have a question for our curators or maybe one for the 300+ Museums participating from around the world, jump onto Twitter today and ask away!

As part of #Ask A Curator Day, Dr Geraldine Mate will be answering questions on air this afternoon with ABC Regional Radio. Photographer Gary Cranitch will also be on air today, chatting to Kelly Higgins-Devine on ABC 612 about his work as a photographer, specifically about the images he captured for the Great Barrier Reef Guide. Tune in from 2pm to listen live.

Some of the images Gary captured as part of his work on the guide have won awards at the Australian Professional Photography Awards held over the weekend. Gary won two Silver Awards and one Silver with Distinction Award in the Science Nature and Environment category. The Great Barrier Reef: A Queensland Museum Discovery Guide was awarded a Silver with Distinction in the Photographic Book Category at the awards. The guide is available to purchase online.
