Plenty of arty things to do

ARTS AND CUL­TURE WITH JEREMY STA­PLES

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.

Don’t for­get if you have any arts and cul­tural in­for­ma­tion you would like to con­trib­ute to this arts and cul­ture col­umn, please get in touch with Jeremy via brag­mar­ket­ing@bund­aberg.qld.gov.au or phone 4130 4756.
