Park Jam: Live Gigs Are Coming to a Park Near You
Published 14 September 2021
Sundays in spring are getting a creative boost with live music and hands-on art happening in parks across Moreton Bay Region.
From acoustic live music to hands-on creative art activities and installations, Park Jam is bringing joy and colour to local communities over five Sundays in October.
Open to all ages and free of charge, Mayor Peter Flannery encouraged everyone to come along and enjoy the entertainment.
“Park Jam offers the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon with friends and family,” Mayor Flannery said.
“This fantastic new initiative showcases the talents of our local musicians and artists as well as our stunning natural areas.
“Just bring a hat or sunshade, and your own picnic blanket or chair to settle in for an afternoon of entertainment.
“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.
“At each Park Jam two local artists, Mel Brady and Marian Reginato, are also offering a hands-on creative art activity, inviting community members 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 garland installation will then grow as Park Jam travels through Moreton Bay Region, building a colourful, visual, textile compilation of our communities.
“Moreton Bay is a region of blue and green places, of big skies, foreshores and fresh waterways as well as leafy tree canopies.
“What better way to enliven these community green spaces than enriching them with live music and art installations.”
