Perfect Sundays

“Park Jam offers the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon with friends and family,” Mayor Peter Flannery said.

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

“Three music acts will perform at each Park Jam, ranging from soulful originals to jaunty folk and atmospheric jazz.

“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.”

Poetic garland

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.

“Together, artists and local communities will create a poetic garland which will be displayed between trees in the park,” the Mayor says.

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