Dear Friends

Well we are back in the office and are really enjoying catching up face to face after weeks of working from home! We are having great brain storming sessions and ideas workshops to ensure that we are back on track with fundraising plans, donor relations, stakeholder and partnership agreements and generally working hard as we move towards the opening of the New Museum which is on schedule for November this year.

We have wrapped up FameLab for this year having listened to some our amazing young scientists. We have ramped up discussions with potential Gallery Naming Rights partners and are busy working with the WA Museum on upcoming exhibition sponsors as we work to achieve our goals of providing an Endowment Fund that will give Alec Coles and his team the opportunity to bring world class exhibitions to Perth, purchase valuable artefacts for the State Collections and fund educational and vital research projects in conjunction with other leading organisations.

Our world will probably never be exactly the same, but our enthusiasm and commitment to the job at hand is high and positive. I look forward to seeing you all again very soon once we announce a revised events calendar. I encourage you to contact me or my team if you need updates, information or would like to make a tax deductible donation prior to the end of the financial year.

Sending my warmest personal regards to you all: please continue to stay safe and well in this ever changing world we live in.
