Australia-Indonesia Museums (AIM) Project Returns in 2024!

Zainab Tahir (Zainab)

Marine Heritage Gallery, Jakarta

Zainab graduated from Hasanuddin University in South Sulawesi, majoring in Archaeology and also from James Cook University's  School of Earth and Environmental Science, Australia, majoring in Marine Protected Area Management. Zainab has been working as a Marine Heritage Analyst for the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries since 2005. One of her responsibilities is managing the Marine Heritage Gallery which opened in March 2017. This gallery specifically exhibits artefacts taken from Indonesian waters, e.g. Chinese ceramics from the 9th - 13th centuries, fine pottery, glass bottles from the Middle East, and several artefacts mostly from metal. Zainab's activities include designing a gallery program to be better known to the public, one of which is through regular learning session activities. Zainab feels that there are still many things to learn in order to create an interactive and engaging educational activity. One of her plans that will be carried out after the pandemic is over is conducting museum roadshows to schools.
