Vital volunteer-run community arts resource needs help

COMMUNITY Arts on Goondoon is looking for a new home as it has received notice to be out of 89 Goondoon St by the end of March.

The volunteer-run centre conducts three after school children's art classes and two adult art classes per week, regular exhibitions by well-known and emerging artists as well as competitions to celebrate annual events such as International Women's Day.

In addition, they have a Giftshop Gallery displaying works by local artists who pay an annual membership.

As they are committed to further developing the skills of creative people in the region, there are also numerous workshops by regional and interstate tutors held on site regularly.

Community Arts on Goondoon currently utilises 400sqm which includes three gallery spaces, the Giftshop Gallery, a print room with two printing presses and an expansive workshop area for conducting workshops and classes.

The volunteer committee has an open mind when considering new premises, and would love to use your vacant building and change it into a wonderful creative space to use for all in Gladstone and surrounding areas.

If you or your company has any means to support arts and culture in the Gladstone region, please contact the centre, creativegladstone@gmail.com. All offers will be considered.

Opening hours are 10am-2pm weekdays and 10am-noon Saturdays.

Community Arts on Goondoon is located at 89a Goondoon St, Gladstone. Entry from the Commonwealth Bank car park, accessed from Roseberry St or Central Lane.
