Help promote libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKC) as the natural home for budding artists and scientists

State Library of Queensland would like to offer an exciting opportunity to four public library or Indigenous Knowledge Centre (IKC) staff from across Queensland to participate in a professional development event from Wednesday 2 – Saturday 5 October 2019 at the State Library of Queensland.

State Library’s Fun Palace will take place in State Library spaces on 5 October from 10am-2pm, and 4.30-5pm. This is your chance to learn-by-doing through guided involvement in the planning leading up to and during the event.

PD participants will receive:

  • hands-on experience hosting a supervised, resourced, repeatable and scalable STEAM activity for the public at State Library’s 2019 Fun Palace
  • hands-on training from State library staff on how to host the activity
  • training in how to use the SLQ Wiki to upload and collaboratively modify Fun Palace activity outlines
  • one additional opportunity to meet and learn from your State Library team of choice
  • reflection and evaluation session with State Library staff after the conclusion of Fun Palace (One hour)

In recognition of the financial pressures on some Councils, State Library is offering a limited number of travel bursaries for attendees to participate in this professional development opportunity at State Library of Queensland.
