Cairns School of Arts

Congratulations to Gaynor Ellis of ADFAS Cairns for completing a report on Cairns School of Arts. The 116 year old building has at various times been home to technical and adult education, many community groups and a library. After the latest of several additions, the 2016 extension now houses the Cairns Museum, Historical Society and Research Centre. Gaynor’s report joins dozens more at https://www.adfas.org.au/school-arts-mechanic-institute/ that tell fascinating stories of places and people across the country. Gaynor will soon embark on another study of a School of Arts in Far North Queensland. There’s plenty more – contact nationalwebsiteliason@adfas.org.au for further information.
