Trinity Gurich, Australia (Class of 2017)

Trinity Gurich is an emerging museum professional, committed to creating inspired and engaging interpretation for our world's history and heritage. Trinity holds qualifications in archaeology and art history, as well as the Dual Award in cultural heritage and world heritage.

Trinity has experience in museum education, and currently works at the Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne, as an education officer. In this role, she aims to make accessible to students from all backgrounds the nuanced complexities of war and conflict. With a strong desire to develop her skills, Trinity has also completed a two month curatorial internship at the Gold Museum, Ballarat, learning new forms of interpretation and undertaking extensive object research.

A member of the Emerging Professionals committee for Museums Galleries Australia, Trinity aims to create a strong network and support body for others entering the industry.  

A classicist at heart but passionate about the decolonisation of the museum space, Trinity has focused her research on the ways in which objects from antiquity can interact with spaces and collections to create new and inclusive dialogues. She wishes to reconnect with her archaeological background in the future. 

Much of my professional development here in Australia is linked to my time in Germany; by opening myself up to the experiences offered by the Dual Award, I have been able integrate the learnings from the degree into my everyday life.
