The Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) has won the Innovation category at the 2015 Museums and Galleries National Awards (MAGNAs) on Friday 22nd May in Sydney.
MAGNAs’ prestigious award for innovation recognises a museum or gallery project that promotes pioneering and sustainable practices. M.A.D.E received the prestigious accolade in recognition of their Eureka 160 program, a series of over 30 events delivered in a five month period to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the Eureka Stockade.
Saltbush Kitchen at M.A.D.E is a modern, beautiful space overlooking the Eureka Park Memorial gardens and lake. Sweeping windows take in the panorama as you enjoy the finest refreshments from our menu.
Saltbush Kitchen offers a quality menu sourced from fresh, local produce and cooked on site. Brigid Corcoran specializes in bringing delicious native flavours to your meal. We cater for any dietary requirements, and offer a selection of hot and cold food, soft drinks, fine espresso coffee and refined teas.
M.A.D.E has gathered over 150 rare, fascinating and exquisite pieces of lavish Australian gold jewellery for the exhibition, which traces the development of this subversive form of wearable decorative art and significant objects from the Australian goldfields 1851 to 1901, plus some key international examples.
M.A.D.E is partnering with Sovereign Hill and the Gold Museum in Ballarat to present part of the exhibition, and present an exciting range of events around the show including workshops, lectures and education offerings.
