“This fantastic new initiative showcases the talents of our local musicians and artists as well as our stunning natural areas.

“Emerging talent also get their chance to shine alongside popular bands and performers, creating an opportunity for our local arts industry to regrow after the challenges of COVID.”
At each Park Jam two local artists, Mel Brady and Marian Reginato, will offer a hands-on creative art activity, inviting visitors to share what makes their heart sing.

“The garland installation will then grow as Park Jam travels through Moreton Bay Region, building a colourful, visual, textile compilation of our communities.”
