There was an excellent turn out to the 7 Keys workshop run for the Museums Australia Far North chapter.  Those attending included volunteers from the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales including, Yamba, Ballina, New Italy, Alstonsville and as far north as the Tweed.  Volunteers of the Clarence River Historical Society hosted the meeting at their beautiful Schaefer House museum.

This was the first run through of the workshop – 7 keys to have kids curious about your museum.  Everyone seemed really engaged in the activities.

This workshop will be run again as part of the SEQ Small museums conference 27 October, 2013 in Brisbane.
