Public art for Beerwah skate park

I am really pleased about a joint project to improve the visual amenity of the Beerwah Skate Park and underpass.  Thanks to a funding grant from the Australian Government, council worked with local community partners to run a public art and graffiti management project, entitled Drawn Together. The project was delivered by professional artists coordinated by The Old Ambulance Station, Nambour who ran a series of art workshops for local young people. The activities were held at the Beerwah and District Youth and Community Centre (BADYACC) and Beerwah Skate Park and the result is a vibrant more locally designed space.

Applications are now open for The Events Centre Caloundra’s Scholarship of Performing Arts 2015.
