Tradition and Transformation was designed by the National Gallery of Victoria's education and multimedia units.

We couldn't have done it without project funding from Multimedia Victoria's Broadband Innovation Fund, and the in-kind support contributed by the National Gallery of Victoria. We thank the Innovation and Next Practice Division, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, and Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority for their support throughout the project.

The National Gallery of Victoria team comprised of:

  • Jean-Pierre Chabrol - project direction
  • Stephen Gilchrist - curatorial
  • Jose Antonio Gonzalez ' production assistance
  • Maksim Lin - development
  • Frances Lindsay - management
  • Jonathan Luker - supplementary design
  • Brian McKinnon - education
  • Jennie Moloney - copyright services
  • Gina Panebianco - education
  • Judith Ryan - curatorial
  • Breton Slivka - development
  • Marg Stephens - education

We also acknowledge the input of group of innovative, resourceful experts who helped us devise, design and launch the BIF NGV websites and activities. They include:

  • Anna Nicholson, Paste - graphic design
  • Jonathan O'Donnell - game design

A special thanks to art teacher Deb Child and her Frankston High School students, who participated enthusiastically in testing of the Tradition and Transformation teacher resources, agreed to helping us make the demonstration videos, and use the artworks made by students as examples.
