Five new digital stories available

Discover five stories made by Q150 digital story workshop participants.

As part of the Storylines – Q150 digital stories project, five members of the community conducted a two-day digital story workshop and created their own stories. Tying in with 50th anniversary of the closure of the Peel
Island lazaret (see post from 14 August), a member of the Friends of Peel Island developed a story on the history of the island.

You can listen to Dr. Mohamad Abdalla as he recounts the formation of the Griffith Islamic Research Unit (GIRU), Queensland’s first centre for Islamic studies and also follow the experiences of those people who moved from war-torn Asia-Minor to Australia: Tony Miller, Leonidas Naoumis, Mark and Ourania Girdis.
