Crack Up Sisters to promote local talent
THE Crack Up Sisters will spearhead a councilsponsored variety tour around the North Burnett region this month.
The tour will commence in Mundubbera on Friday, November 11 and continue through Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Mt Perry and Monto.
As part of the council’s Norming the Arts program, the Crack Up Sisters have paved the way for a resurgence in local community performance arts.
The goal is to use entertainment to build community resilience in the North Burnett.
To that end, the Sisters’ variety tour will headline various acts and exhibitions put on by local talent.
Councillor Paul Lobegeier said the Crack Up Sisters were called on because of the way they have successfully integrated in all of the major North Burnett community centres.
“I’ve been to many of the events and sessions these girls have had in our region and I am myself inspired by the life-changing effect this project has had on so many lives,” Cr Lobegeier said.
“The sisters have spent hours with nursing homes and hospital staff teaching them the professional skills to help their clients rehabilitate and improve their physical and mental wellbeing, and helping improve their overall quality of life.”
Those who are interested in getting involved with the initiative can contact the council community development team on 1300 696 272.
Expressions of interest forms are available on the North Burnett Regional Council website and at local customer service centres.
The deadline for community submissions to the program is Monday, November 7.
