The CHERBOURG MEMORY is a project of the Ration Shed Museum – a not for profit organisation based in Cherbourg in South East Queensland and run mainly by Aboriginal volunteers: www.rationshed.com.au
The organisation, the Museum and this project are funded by a mix of grants from government and independent philanthropic organisations. We are in need of funds to continue this work – particularly in the further building of the archives and the creation and dissemination of educational materials based around the Museum and Website.
