As part of its participation in the 2018 National Trust Heritage Festival, the Addison Road Community Centre is creating a pop-up museum!
The Addison Road Community Centre is known for its vibrant weekend markets but it has an even richer history. Just under the asphalt is the parade ground where service personnel camped and horses galloped when it was the army depot that opened during WWI. Still further underground is the freshwater creek that speaks of its Indigenous heritage and life as a market garden. Today it is a gathering place for multicultural, environmental and arts groups – a living museum where history is created daily. It makes sense that documenting and sharing this heritage is a collective effort, so we’re inviting anyone who has a connection to the Centre, or just loves heritage stuff and stories, to help us create a pop-up museum for this year’s Heritage Festival, which has the theme: My Culture, My Story.
Bring along something that reflects your culture, your story and add it to our 3-hours only, friendly community museum created entirely by you and others – a glimpse of our collective heritage. Includes cake.
The pop-up museum will run from 10am to 1pm in Gumbramorra Hall at the Centre, and coincides with Community.A.Fair, an event that brings local services and community together. Participation is free and there are no bookings required. If you will need any assistance with bringing an object to the pop-up museum or have any queries, please get in touch with Mina: firstname.lastname@example.org on 9569 7633.
