There are three new community-created digital stories now available on Queensland Stories. The first story is from the Sandgate and Bracken Ridge Action Group (SANDBAG) about the economic development of the Sandgate area. The other two stories were created at the Yugambeh Museum as part of the Online Indigenous Language Resources and Community Workshops OPAL project. Sisters Robyn and Eileen Williams tell the stories about their sister Loris and mother Agnes, respectively. Robyn talks specifically about Loris’s time working at the State Library of Queensland and the satisfaction she received from helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people connect with their history.
