TMAC artists recently coordinated a creative arts activity with the members of the Friday Friendship Group who meet at the community centre on Tamborine Mountain. They wanted to create a large dolphin banner to hang over the entry door.
The dolphin was sketched onto the board, the background painted then hundreds of fabric circles were cut out by the enthusiastic group.
After a very social lunch, the group began to stick down all the fabric dots to create the fabulous dolphin banner, named Kwilena (meaning dolphin) and with the words Jingeri Jimbelung, which translates as “Welcome, Friend” in the local indigenous language.
The project was finished in a day and all the participants were very happy with the finished work, which will welcome all to their community centre for a long time to come.
All members are invited to attend TMAC’s AGM this Wed evening, 4th September at 7pm, to be held at the Sports Complex Meeting Room, 400 Long Road, Tamborine Mountain.
If you would like to nominate yourself or another member for an executive position, please ensure your membership is current.
Following the AGM will be a general meeting to discuss upcoming events and plans for TMACs future.
