Rebecca Pinchin was Regional Services Manager at the Powerhouse Museum (PHM) for 13 years. In this capacity she incorporated regional services into the PHM’s strategic plan, and worked at a senior level with the Director, managers, curators and other staff across the museum. Her tireless campaigning for regional and community museums resulted in small museums gaining acccess to a wide range of in-house Powerhouse skills and services including, conservation services, strategic planning, exhibition design, and marketing.
Under Rebecca's guidance, Regional Services has had significant
impact on museums across NSW, as well as on PHM staff who, in working
with small museums have increased their knowledge and developed genuine
appreciation of local and regional collections and their importance.
Rebecca led the team that developed the award-winning Australian Dress Register which documented
the history and significance of hundreds of garments in museums and
family collections providing an important repository of information,
capturing vulnerable histories, and making little known collections
