Interactive Public Art Installation – Gladstone

In collaboration with CPL Gladstone (Choice, Passion,Life) and Conservation Volunteers Australia in Gladstone, Melissa Peacock from A Country Arts Practice has lead community art workshops from July-December 2019, where the participants have learnt how to make handmade paper with native seeds embedded into the paper, which has transformed into miniature windmills.

The handmade paper windmills will become a part of two large public art installations located at Canoe Point, Tannum Sands and Joe Joseph Park, Gladstone. These conservation project sites are managed by Conservation Volunteers Australia and Gladstone Regional Council.

This launch is inviting 100 people from the local community to join the participants and community partners to install the many windmills that have been made at Canoe Point on Saturday the 7th of December from 9-11am, with a celebratory morning tea provided by local social enterprise, Incredible Edibles.
This date ties in with International Day of Persons With Disabilities on Tuesday the 3rd of December, 2019.

Councillor Glenn Churchill will open the event just after 9am, with guest speakers to follow.

This is a unique experience to take part in a community arts project that addresses the subjects of recycling, sustainability and environmental art.

With many thanks to Fitzroy Basin Association and the Australian Governments Landcare Program, along with Gladstone Area Water Board for funding this project and event.

RSVP 30th of November.
