ABC Open, the Brunswick Valley Historical Society and the Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre invite you to a free digital storytelling workshop at the Brunswick Valley Historical Museum, corner of Stuart and Myocum streets, Mullumbimby this Saturday 31 March from 9.30am to 4pm.
Come and create a photographic window into the past, and tell a story about how times have changed.
As an example, you will be able to see how the building itself, which used to be the Mullumbimby post office, has changed over time and take a peak at some of the landmark moments in the town’s history that took place there.
‘In this ABC Open workshop we will teach participants how to re-photograph an old photo in the spot where it was originally taken and write a short story about the people and events captured,’ say the organisers. ‘You will be guided through the writing task with a local published author. We will also teach you how to share your photo and story online on the ABC.
‘ABC Open’s Now & Then will feature at the Museum of Sydney in 2012. So get involved – your photo and story could be part of a national exhibition.’
For further information visit the ABC Open website open.abc.net.au and go to the Now & Then series 2 page. Book soon as places are limited.
The historical society is also seeking people who wish to volunteer to assist at the museum at Mullumbimby.
In particular it is looking for people with the following skills: secretarial, marketing, building maintenance and conservation of the collection. Please contact [email protected] or phone 6684 8367.
