The Graceville Art Festival is coming again and we are proud to host it right in our church building. Graceville is the Sunshine Coast’s largest disability and mental health service, run by Lutheran Services.

The Graceville Art Festival celebrates the unique artwork created by Graceville Centre residents/clients and the wider network of Sunshine Coast inclusive art studios and artistic community. This event shares the joy of art making across all mediums and honours the satisfaction and sense of wellbeing it fosters.

The Graceville Art Festival celebrates creative expression and artistry through our signature art exhibition and opening event. The Gubbi Gubbi Dancers honours the festival with their moving Welcome to Country.

The Create Together, Belong Together Fun Day, Friday 23 June, aims to strengthen and celebrate the network of Sunshine Coast community services, artists, and art studios that are providing inclusive creative engagement with people who have a lived experience of a disability and/or mental illness, by inviting services to have a stall and/or facilitate creative workshops.

On Saturday 24 June, we invite families to enjoy the art exhibition and connect through participating in drumming, dance and singing workshops facilitated by Sunshine Coast’s Rhythm Culture. Kid friendly creative art workshops will also be offered, facilitated by local artists.

Worship on The Green, Sunday 25, further invites people to connect with morning tea and the art exhibition.

The Graceville Art Festival promotes access and inclusion by offering free exhibition registration and free participation in creative workshops.
