After a period of challenges and with support from the Castlemaine and Central Victorian community — as well as special friends from broader afield — CAM is in a phase of renewal.

Just as the community gathered around for the launch in 1931 we invite you to gather once again in support of CAM’s renewal.

Guided by extensive audience and stakeholder research, we have rolled up our sleeves and are cataloguing, documenting and securing the Collection; caring for CAMs heritage listed building; refreshing the galleries and developing public programs.
