Association of Australian Gallery Guiding Organisations

The National Gallery of Australia voluntary guides are members of the Australia-wide guiding organisation Association of Australian Gallery Guiding Organisations (AAGGO). The guiding bodies of 19 Australian art galleries make up the membership of AAGGO.

The aim of AAGGO is to:

  • facilitate the exchange of information and ideas between member organisations
  • foster guides’ understanding and appreciation of the collections of their galleries.

These aims are met primarily by:

  • holding conferences in which the principal attendees are the voluntary guides from the member organisations
  • holding meetings of the AAGGO Council (comprising 1 member from each member organisation).
