2008 Castaway Art - New Beginnings


The Castaway Art - New Beginnings project is a series of workshops presented by local artists, a competition and exhibition of entries teaming up the residents of Banana Shire and Gladstone Regional Councils.

Castaway Art entries are made predominantly from recycled materials aiming to promote awareness within the community on the exciting ways we can reduce waste going to landfill.

The Castaway Art competition categories include Two Dimensional Art, Three Dimensional Art, Functional Art (including wearable and musical) and a Logo Challenge where artists are invited to re-create their council's logo.

Workshop opportunities include Music Sculpture with Rosemary Anderson, Shoe Art with Marina Hobbs, Creative Wind Chimes with Tracey Smith and Re-invention with Jo Williams.

Castaway Art is an initiative of the Central Queensland Local Government Association, partnered with the Banana Shire and Gladstone Regional Councils supported by CQ Waste Management.
