An innovative cultural project is enabling Caloundra residents and visitors to appreciate the artistic talents of the City's youth, while enjoying lunch or coffee at a local café.
Caloundra City Mayor, Don Aldous, said Eat My Art, to be launched in Felicity Park on Saturday, highlights the art and cultural expression of the City's young people.
"The Eat My Art exhibition was developed by young people for the young people of Caloundra City," Cr Aldous said.
"The exhibition showcases the positive impact and creativity of the City's young people through a variety of artistic mediums and offers the community some insight into the culture, beliefs, hopes and concerns of our youth.
"Art, fashion, photography and other creative industries are an important part of our make-up, offering freedom of expression, cultural input and business opportunities and it is evident by this exhibition that the City's artistic youth have a bright future."
Eat My Art has been organised by Council's Youth Development Unit in partnership with the Youth Activity Service, local artists, Creative Minds, Caloundra State High School and cafes in Caloundra's CBD.
The exhibition was made possible through a $13,000 grant from the Foundation for Young Australians and the Department of Communities On Track Leadership project, which aims to engage young people in the community by developing a community project.
The exhibition will be held at Buongusto, Café Mediterranean, Mango Deli, Gelati Milano, Otranto's, Re-energize and Spuds and More from June 4 to June 11.
