Precinct redevelopment sets a precedent for community consultation

The latest additions to Queensland’s Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct include a Living Museum, designed to showcase and celebrate locals from all walks of life.

The Living Museum of Logan, one of the final components of the Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct redevelopment, was officially opened with a Community Day on Saturday 20 August 2023.

The museum features three display areas on the building’s ground floor, including a dedicated First Nations space, and climate-controlled vitrines throughout. Exhibitions designed to both inform visitors about the region and provide a forum for locals will be changed every three to four months.
