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. The RADF funded Urban Art Project has created ownership and provided culturally relevant arts activities for young people. I look forward to contributing to future initiatives now the seed has been sown. Read more:

Grantham, Laidley and Kensington Grove

The Urban Art project continues with plenty of action in Grantham, Laidley and Kensington Grove or “Hatto” if your local. I want to extend my appreciation to all of the artists, community members, skaters and riders for welcoming Aerograffix and getting involved in this exciting project.

Helidon, Forest Hill and Gatton

Weekends are keeping me busy with Lockyer Valley Regional Council. The Urban Art Project will reach each of the eight skateparks in the area. Council has erected small walls to create ownership and a youth friendly environment. Participation has been great and feedback from community groups very positive. Heres a sample from Helidon, Forest Hill and Gatton…plenty more to come!
