Eliabeth Bondfield

Roving Curator: Museum Standards Program

Elizabeth realised she wanted a career in the museum industry when she saw people crying at the Immigration Museum, and she saw the power that museums had to move people so deeply. Fast forward ten years, and amongst many, many other things Elizabeth has held colonial scrimshaw in her hands, curated a show for Tasmania’s surfing community, and helped document a collection of photographs from a Quaker aid worker in Europe after the ruins of World War One. She holds a Bachelor of History with Honours and has held positions at Museum Victoria, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, as well as being a Roving Curator in a previous incarnation.  She still finds that connection between people and story – especially helping people to tell their own stories, the most exciting and rewarding part of working with museum collections.
