Eat My Art will be unveiled in Felicity Park on Wednesday (30 May) from 8.30am
A new series of creative artworks based around the theme 'Eat my Art, not my smoke' by young people is set to feature in the cafes of Caloundra's CBD following its launch later this week.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said the Eat My Art project, an initiative of Council's Youthlinx program which aims to encourage young people to explore issues that affect them through the arts will be launched on Wednesday as part of Council's Local Government Week celebrations.
"The primary aim of this project is to encourage young people to learn as much as possible about the choices they make in regards to their health and to explore and challenge themselves creatively," Cr Aldous said.
The project, supported by ATODS (Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drug Services), provided participants with information and educational material on issues surrounding tobacco use, with the participants resulting artwork forming the basis of the exhibition.
The exhibition will be on display, today, for one day only, at Gloria Jeans. The artworks will then be spread across a number of Caloundra's cafes.
Cr Aldous said up to 26 participants have been involved with the project, which were delivered by Youthlinx in conjunction with Cadet's Get Set for Work program participants. .
