Encounters 1770 and 2016/7
This amazing exhibition opened in the Caboolture Gallery in November 2016 and will continue until January 21st, 2017. It was created in Queensland by indigenous and non-indigenous artists to envisage what happened in 1770 when Captain James Cook sailed along the Queensland coast in the good ship Endeavour.

The exhibition, called the East Coast Encounter encouraged the artists to create works about that journey and how the indigenous peoples and white people came together during that historic encounter.

The East Coast Encounter seeks to promote cultural dialogue and reconciliatory understanding between Indigenous and non- Indigenous Australians."

With only a few weeks to go before it closes, it is a great time to take the family along to this exhibition to see how the various artists have portrayed these historic times.

The Gallery is air-conditioned (a bit plus at this time of the year), and there is a film which all the family should find interesting. While the adults continue to explore this wonderful exhibition, the children could play outside in the Caboolture Square or visit the Library if they wish. And Benny's might be open for coffee/cake.
