EVENT | Fitzgibbon Open Day and Launch

Fitzgibbon Chase’s new display village and main parkland will officially open this Saturday 18 September at 10am. At the launch the ULDA will also unveil its first public art project – tuned hand rails (pictured above and below), created by Queensland Artists Barbara Penrose and Nameer Davis and facilitated by Harbinger’s John Armstrong. This project has been made possible with support from Queensland Government’s art+place public art program. As the public art strategist for this project, John has fused the planning and curatorial approach through engagement with urban design and community planning priorities. He proposed the tuned railings project while Davis and Penrose developed the concept as an integrated artwork.

Minister for Infrastructure and Planning, the Honourable Stirling Hinchliffe, will conduct the official opening ceremony at 11.15am.

Come along on Saturday to see how the first artwork has come to fruition and celebrate with the ULDA’s project team and local community. Everyone is welcome to take advantage of free entertainment for the kids that includes a musical playground, face painting and balloons. For adults there will be a series of free workshops on gardening, interior design and energy saving homes. There will be a free sausage sizzle and homes to explore.

Date: Saturday 18 September
Time: 10am – 2pm (Official opening ceremony 11.15am)
Where: Carselgrove Ave extension (off Beams Road), Fitzgibbon
