Orange, Cabonne, Blayney. The search is on to discover and photograph the region’s unique homegrown ‘vernacular’ architecture such as farm buildings and sheds.
Vernacular architecture uses local materials and resources, it reflects local traditions and local skills and meets local needs.
Blayney, Cabonne and Orange councils are working together, under the Sustainable Collections Program, on a study to document the district’s historical rural sheds and outbuildings.
They’re encouraging residents and farmers in the area to get behind the project and assist us to identify items. This will result in photographic exhibitions to be held in the regional museums around the district.
Anyone interested is invited to attend the meeting to find out more about the project and contribute any suggestions of rural vernacular buildings.
The meetings will be held at the Blayney Community Centre, 41 Church Street, Blayney on Thursday 1 June 2023 commencing at 10.30am – 11.30am.
Molong RSL, Riddell Street, Molong on Friday 2 June commencing at 10.30am-11.30am.
Anyone wanting further information, or to RSVP to Alison Russell at Orange City Council on firstname.lastname@example.org or 63938 170.
