Although achieving success as a composer, Percy Grainger considered himself to be an 'all round man': a non-specialist who pursued a wide range of interests. Intensely curious, he was devoted to lifelong learning. Grainger's approach to education would be classified in contemporary terms as multi-disciplinarian, making the Grainger Museum collection an excellent resource for research and study.

Cultural Collections Projects Program

The Cultural Collections Projects Program gives students, alumni and volunteers in the wider community the opportunity to work with the Grainger Museum collection. Projects aim to provide the participant with valuable experience working behind the scenes in a cultural institution whilst adding value to the interpretation and management of the collection.

Most of the projects are semester-long and on average require a time commitment of a day or so a week.
