Share your memories of iconic Caloundra beach
  • Wednesday 18 June 2008

Would you like to be part of history, and leave your footprint on the multi-million dollar redevelopment of Bulcock Beach?

Then don’t miss your opportunity to share stories, photographs and objects connected with the area with a workshop at the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery next week.

Caloundra Regional Art Gallery Director John Waldron said those interested will have an opportunity to help create an enhanced space as part of the makeover of the popular area.

The Gallery is working with artist Sam Di Mauro as part of the upgrade of the Bulcock Beach Esplanade to create an enhanced space for visitors that reflects the natural and historical character of Bulcock Beach.

Those stories contributed by locals and visitors will hopefully provide a significant source of inspiration for the artist who will create art work to encourage viewers to reflect on the culture and history of place.

Sam Di Mauro, a Senior Lecturer in Design at Griffith University, has worked with locals in Brisbane, Childers, Mission Beach, Innisfail, Ingham and Cooktown to develop community arts projects/exhibitions.

The workshop will be held at the Gallery in Omrah Avenue next Tuesday (24 June) at 9.30am. For RSVP or further inquiries please contact the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery on 5420 8299 or alternatively the artist at s.dimauro@griffith.edu.au
