Withcott and Murphy's Creek

Murals at Withcott and Murphy’s Creek have completed the Urban Art Project over the weekend. Eight skateparks across the Lockyer Valley have been brightened up with artworks designed and painted by local young people and Aerograffix. Many positive outcomes have been achieved including a young person who initiated the project receiving a Young Citizens Cultural Award. Community feedback has been great and I commend Lockyer Valley Regional Council for supporting youth arts in the face of adversity with disaster relief and recovery still continuing in the region.
