Prior to joining Artefact, Carolyn held a number of key interpretive roles, including Head of Education and Public Programs at the Australian Museum where she managed the production of exhibition interpretation, multimedia development, education and community programs, visitor services, outreach programs and publications.
She has also worked in community education and exhibition development at the Museum of Anthropology Vancouver Canada, the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, and as Director of Professional Development at the Institute of Actuaries of Australia.
A skilled project manager and communicator, she has extensive research and writing experience, having written 25 science education books, over 20 articles and conference papers, and developed interpretive materials and media for a wide variety of audiences.
In my hands I am holding a small container of Museum Wax. This material is very useful in museum exhibition development, as a tiny amount can hold an artefact carefully in place without causing any damage to the artefact.
I am very fortunate that a large part of my career was spent in museums in Australia and Canada where I was involved in developing hundreds of exhibitions and public programs.
