Sunday, Feb 25

Recognising the urgent need for improved interpretation of the village, Alex Miles Design was commissioned by the council to prepare the first three of an initial Six interpretation panels and objects. With nothing said about the district’s Tasmanian Aboriginal people, the first three, installed in late 2023, focus on telling stories of the Mumirimina people, whose country Richmond and the Coal Fiver Valley occupy. The implementation these panels has been integrated into Clarence Council’s current Richmond Masterplan Project to provide coordinated approach for future interpretation within Richmond.

Three members of the interpretation project will be at the riverbank site beside the bridge to explain the history, design, and storytelling approach used for these important improvements. Tracey Cockburn, Head of Community and Culture, and Chris Jordan, Landscape Architect, both from Clarence City Council, and Theresa Sainty, Tasmanian Aboriginal cultural consultant, will be available to discuss the project between 10 am and 12 noon on Sunday 25 February. They will present introductory talks at 10.00, 10.30 am, 11.00 am, and 11.30 am.
