Mayor Jamieson - Viewing our Horizon
  • Wednesday 29 August 2018

The third Horizon Festival on our healthy, smart, creative Sunshine Coast is off to a wonderful start.

It's been very pleasing to see thousands of locals and visitors attending events across our region since the opening ceremony and celebration at Cotton Tree last Friday.

And there's much more to come with a busy and diverse schedule through to this Sunday, including some great free events.

Each year, Horizon provides a great opportunity for our local artists, alongside specially invited national and international guests, to come together and showcase their talents with the community and the many visitors to our region.

My thanks go to our festival partners for their support and for sharing our love of arts and culture.

Thank-you also to the dedicated artists, producers, organisers, event managers, committees, curators, workers and volunteers who have come together to bring you a wonderfully diverse Horizon 2018.

I’m sure everyone who attends one of our Horizon events will take away some wonderful memories and a deeper appreciation of arts and culture here on our Sunshine Coast.
