Plenty of arty things to do
ARTS AND CULTURE WITH JEREMY STAPLES
IT IS YET another action-packed fortnight of cultural and creative events happening through the Childers region, ranging from workshops to Sunday afternoon events.
RELAX and unwind at The Palace on Sunday, June 22, when Bevan Spiers performs on the balcony at Childers Arts Space.
Watch the sun set and be entertained on a lazy Sunday afternoon by the talented Spiers.
Spiers moved to Australia from New Zealand in 2003 after making a living over the past 12 years performing in a number of successful music acts. His influences are as far-reaching as Bob Dylan to The White Stripes and will no doubt be the perfect performer for June’s Sunday at The Palace.
Tickets are $10 and can be pre-purchased in person at CHARTS or on the afternoon at the door.
THE friends of the Chiders Festival are meeting on June 26 from 4.30pm at the Childers Cultural Centre.
The group is still on the lookout for more community members to get onboard with shaping future activities within the festival.
RECORD numbers recently attended the opening of Round Pots, Square Holes at CHARTS and now it’s time for kids to join the fun.
A Clay Creations workshop will run on Friday, July 11, at the Childers Arts Space from 10am-noon.
This workshop is a chance to learn directly from Cate Verney, a Childers Firehouse potter, a CHARTS volunteer and an exhibiting artist in the Round Pots, Square Holes exhibition.
Get creative, get messy and get your very own artwork to take home.
The workshop is suitable for children aged between six and16 and costs $8 per person.
Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting CHARTS on 4130 4876 or www.brag-brc.org.au/workshops.
