Working For Health Display

2/12/2017
'WORKING FOR HEALTH DISPLAY'
 
 
Our new exhibition (pictured below) titled 'Working for Health' opened last October, and has been an excellent drawcard for visitors this season.
 
   
The exhibition honours and celebrates the outstanding contributions made by our dedicated health workers, who in the past, the present and the future, will continue to deliver a world class health system for the benefit of all Australians.
 
 
 
The 'Working for Health' Exhibition showcases a film titled "Iningai Dreaming'.  The film explores the historical significance of the indigenous medicine man, bush medicine in general and the future role of bush medicines in the wider community.   
 
These ancient wisdoms have turned full circle and will now and in the future provide valuable    medical relief for the benefit of the broader community.
 
The film was commissioned by the Australian Workers Heritage Centre and features members of the local Central Western Queensland Aboriginal Corporation.
 
 A separate education room (left) for students is included within the display / exhibition, ensuring an enjoyable learning experience for the whole family.
 
 
 
The 'Working for Health' Exhibit is one of the displays at the Workers Heritage Centre students visit as part of the AWHC Quiz Tour which is delivered by the Wanpa-rda Matilda Education Officer.
 
Students armed with a site map of the Centre and quiz booklet are tasked to head off in their tribes and challenged to seek out the answers that are hidden within the rich tapestry of artefacts, multimedia, photographs, games and written history contained within the exhibits at the Workers Heritage Centre.
