The 2011 Celebrating Research focus for Cairns is the relationship of JCU researchers to Papua New Guinea and in particular the research that is being conducted. JCU has many researchers working with and across PNG and has in this way contributed to social and economic development of our close neighbours over many years.
The photographic exhibition and film fest will present leading researchers work across a broad spectrum of issues in PNG. It shows the power of images to communicate central issues of cultural diversity, social change and the environment.
Join us for your first viewing of the new ‘Framing the issues’ exhibition and a chance to view unique footage from PNG. ‘Framing the Issues’ will remain on display for two weeks in the foyer of the library.

Time: 4:30 pm till 6:30 pm (nibbles will be served)
