Chinese Museum Strategic Plan: 2008-2010
Client: Museum of Chinese Australian History and Victorian Multicultural Commission, VIC, 2008
Brecknock Consulting with support from museum design consultant Peter Tonkin Design, were engaged to work with the Museum staff and board members on the development of a ten year strategic plan. The museum, located in Melbourne's Chinatown, has an important collection telling the story of Chinese involvement in Australia from the early days of settlement to the present day. The plan focused on management, museum collection, building redevelopment and potential upgrades of external public spaces as part of the Melbourne Cultural Precincts Enhancement Program. On the basis of the strategic plan the Museum received major State Government funding in 2009 in order to undertake significant upgrading of the Museum building and displays.
