MEDIA RELEASE
Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee receives funding for environmental art at the Southside Sustainability Centre, Carindale.

Funding of more than $8000 has been received by Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee from SignatureBrisbane to develop a mural that expresses community values and experiences of Bulimba Creek Catchment. The creation of this mural and several informative signs about the centre will be facilitated by local artist, Chrissy Foreman C.

SignatureBrisbane awards three grants a year for projects that celebrate Brisbane’s unique ‘signature’ and draw together the themes of environment and art.

The project at the Southside Sustainability Centre received funding for its focus on expressing care for the environment through art, and for its celebration of Brisbane’s second largest catchment. Also important is its approach which involves the local community in the concept planning, design and construction of the mural.

Three workshops will be held to share stories of the creek and design the mural, with the final painting days in June. Residents of Bulimba Creek Catchment are invited to attend these workshops.

The first workshop is on Monday 19 April, 2010. For more information and to book your place contact the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee office on 07 3420 4800 or b4c@bulimbacreek.org.au
