After premature action by Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor, councillor Quirk, to close Jagera Arts Hall in Musgrave Park on 4 Nov 2014, Brisbane City Council passed a resolution that Jagera Arts Hall be leased to Musgrave Park Cultural Centre Inc (MPCCI).!
There is a new board of the MPCCI and over 80 new members who decided to rectify the failure of the QLD State government to build a Aboriginal Cultural Centre. The Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy intervened in March 2012 and demanded that Aboriginal Cultural practice take place as it always has done in this special meeting place.
Keep the fire burning … celebrate this victory around the sacred fire!

Jagera wasn’t the BCC’s Hall to lease to aboriginal people in the first place!
Always was, always will be aboriginal land!
