The Foundation for Culture and Arts Eumundi is launching its Sunshine Hinterland Writers and Readers Fund with an “Evening with Australian Birds” featuring Tim Low, highly regarded international biologist and prize-winning author of Where Song Began, Australia’s birds and how they changed the world, in conversation with Emeritus Professor Henry Nix AO, with a slide-show presentation Personalities of Australian Birds, by acclaimed wildlife photographer, Raoul Slater.
Foundation chair, Michael Carney said, “having experts in the world of birds as eminent as these three and Henry Nix, being a local, seemed the perfect combination for a celebratory event like this: the launch of a new chapter for the Foundation and the continuation of the popular events and activities of the former Sunshine Hinterland Writers Centre (SHWC). It called for a subject that would have wide appeal to the residents of the Sunshine Hinterland. “Whether they are serious birdwatchers or merely back yard enthusiasts, people in the Sunshine Hinterland love their birds. It’s almost a condition of residence”, he said.
Event organiser, Judi Pattison, said, “Raoul Slater’s photographs are simply stunning. They form the perfect backdrop to the conversation between Tim Low and Henry Nix about the evolution of Australia’s unique birdlife, its role in shaping this continent and, of course, birdlife everywhere.”
An Evening with Australian Birds will be held in Eumundi’s historic School of Arts Hall, 63 Memorial Drive, on Friday, 26 August commencing at 6:30pm.
Tickets available online from www.o-tix.com/event/EWAB or Berkelouw’s Books, Eumundi. $20 and $15 (Concession), includes a welcome drink and nibbles.
