Creativity emerges in many forms, and you don’t need to look hard to find it in the bayside. There’s talent galore!

It’s the artists who turn scrap into sculpture and the authors who bare their souls. The volunteer-run theatre groups full of talented people who perform purely for the love of it. It’s the folks you meet on the esplanade who tell cracking stories that brighten your day.

Belmont’s Paul Adams is one local creative sprinkling stardust throughout Brisbane’s live theatre scene. As an award-winning actor and playwright, Paul’s play, Adventures of Peter Rabbit, was nominated for two prestigious Matilda Awards last month. Congratulations! Find out more here.

And if you’d like to explore your creative side, many groups in our community – like Wynnum Manly Arts Council’s tutors – are ready to guide your journey.

So here’s to the artists, the artisans, the musicians, and the storytellers, who remind us that life is one big canvas we can all splash a little colour onto, or simply relax and be entertained. Thank you! Your gifts are appreciated.
