Our partner institutions--the National Gallery of Victoria,

provide the staff from the Ministry of Education and Culture with
the opportunities to develop their experience and training in the
care and conservation of cultural heritage. This programme is

Leste, and the University of Melbourne.

Directors and representatives from Australian museums and galleries,
Victorian Government representatives, UNPAZ University in East
Timor, local Timorese groups, community and aid organisations, and

The project provides the cultural heritage sector in Australia with
a most unique opportunity to contribute to the development of the
cultural heritage programme of East Timor.
