Snapping Tully

8/October/2021

As a part of the build up to the Centenary of Tully in 2024, the Tully100 Centenary Steering Committee is undertaking a photo snapshot of our community. This will include photos of the descendants of pioneer families who were in Tully during the early 1920’s and 1930’s. If you are a descendant of a pioneer family and would like to be a part of the project, please email tullycentenary@gmail.com by Tuesday, October 12.

 

The pioneer family photos can include all the available descendants of our early settlers’ parents, grandparents, kids, grandkids, etc. Some families have also chosen to hold photos of the original pioneers. The photos will be taken by Blume photography and will form part of a community exhibition in Tully and Innisfail and will also be used as a part of the Tully100 celebrations and be stored by Cassowary Coast Libraries for future generations.

 

The Snapping Tully social snapshot is funded by the Cassowary Coast Regional Council through the Regional Arts Development Fund. This project is a celebration of heritage, community identity, sense of place, and social cohesion. 

 

This project will be a celebration of past history while acknowledging the present. Importantly, this project provides the community with a vehicle to record themselves visually, creating a social snapshot. This project will create a social snapshot of our community as it stands today, forming part of a larger historical record for future generations. This is a momentum building project and forms part of a larger strategic vision of the community celebrating the centenary of Tully in 2024. 

 

The Tully100 Centenary Steering Committee is an initiative of the 4854: looking forward advocacy group; in partnership with the Tully and District Chamber of Commerce and the Tully Support Centre. 

 

If you are a descendant of a pioneer family and would like to be a part of the project, please email tullycentenary@gmail.com by Tuesday, October 12.
