Share a Walk Down Memory Lane

Do you remember the fun and laughter, ice-creams and sunburn, romance and adventure that were an essential part of any family holiday at Caloundra?

Sunshine Coast Council needs your help to create a work of art based around these wonderful memories.  Taking you back to a time when life was simple and carefree, or maybe even just last week, the 'Memory Lane' installation will feature a paste up of contributed mementos along the Village Laneway in the Caloundra CBD.  

Council’s Creative Communities Manager, Christine Ballinger, said the temporary art installation is a fun and interactive way for the community to celebrate and contribute to the streetscape upgrade of Bulcock Street and the Caloundra CBD.  

“The purpose of public art is to bring art into everyday life, to energise public spaces and to stimulate thought,” Ms Ballinger said.

“The Memory Lane project is a fun way to share the history and memories of great times, while also involving the wider community in the reinvigoration of the Caloundra CBD.”

Council invites you to recall your fondest memories of special times spent in Caloundra—holiday activities, camping, fishing trips, a great surfing weekend or maybe something completely different—and send copies of photos, postcards, posters, film or other memorabilia to help create a real walk down memory lane.

Community members are also invited to help install the project in the Village Laneway during a weekend workshop on 19 and 20 May, contact council by email or phone 07 5475 7272 to book your spot at what is sure to be a fun weekend.

“This is a great opportunity to join with family and friends to reminisce, share stories and relive the fun and excitement of time spent in Caloundra,” Ms Ballinger said.

“It may even lead to renewed acquaintances!”

Further details about the Memory Lane art project are available at council’s website or through customer service.
