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).
