Museum celebrating beginnings for area

THE Mundubbera Museum will host Celebrating Our Beginnings, a social event where a new mural will be unveiled on the museum grounds this weekend.

Called Our Beginnings, the section is the first stage of a larger historical mural.

Mundubbera Museum secretary Loris Doessel explained the significance of the mural.

"Our Beginnings is dedicated to our first peoples, and will be opened by the artist Malcolm Brown Snr,” Ms Doessel said.

In addition, a First Peoples display will also open, and the secretary hopes local people may be able to contribute items to expand the small exhibition.

"We received a reconciliation grant, so we're launching a dedicated Indigenous display,” she said.

"We're hoping the public will be able to contribute some items to our First Peoples display.”

The event will start at 1pm on Sunday with a welcome to country.

"Aunty Nancy Beezley will perform a welcome to country before the official opening of the First Peoples display,” Ms Doessel said.

The social afternoon will include refreshments, arts, crafts and entertainment and all are invited to join in celebrating local history, viewing the current museum displays and planning for future improvements at the museum.

Admission costs $5 for adults, while kids under 15 years of age will be granted free entry.
