In September a team of three artists from Crossroad Arts Mackay hit the road for a month to work in Gladstone and Biloela. Artists were working in three different aged care centres and ran a variety of different workshops. Here is what some of the Staff and Residents had to say: Staff: “Such a wonderful array of activities that could be worked into a daily calendar after workshops are finished” “Great interaction with the residents, especially in the dementia unit” Residents: “I really enjoyed the experience” “Can’t wait till next time” “Please come back” A big thank you to both Hibiscus, Eden Vale and Biloela Respite Centre for their warm welcome and wonderful send off, we look forward to returning and hope the staff and residents were as inspired as we were! - Crossroad Arts is also thrilled to announce that two residents from Hibiscus Aged Care Facility Gladstone, Woody and Norm, will be traveling to Mackay in November to act in the Finding Ithaka production.

Brenden Borellini along with Steve Mayer-Miller and Kyla Ranger went to Central Queensland University last Saturday and spoke with a class of first year students studying an undergraduate degree in nursing. We would like to thank Lecturer Martin Hannah for the invitation, and we hope the class enjoyed the visit as much as we did.
