Free Creative Workshops for Kids


THE Community Support Centre Innisfail is hosting three, free, creative workshops for children and young people to promote Queensland Child Protection Week, which runs from September 5 – 11.

These workshops will focus on the theme ‘Every child, in every community, needs a fair go,’ and together this can be achieved.

This year’s theme is about treating all of Australia’s children fairly, and to do this, we need to make sure every family and community has what children need to thrive and be healthy.

Children will be able to paint, write, draw, and create collage, poems, mandala, sculpture, mixed media, and posters.

It is hoped to see artworks that are based on meaningful conversations with children and young people themselves about their needs.

Artworks will be displayed in the community and on social media (with consents required). Selected art pieces will also be included in a CSCI sponsored book to promote our children and community.

The first workshop will be held on Tuesday, August 3 from 3.30pm – 5.30pm (RSVP by July 30); the second on Tuesday, August 17 from 3.30pm – 5.30pm (RSVP August 13), at CSCI, 13 – 17 Donald Street, Innisfail. 

The third workshop, to be held on Saturday, September 11 from 10.00am – 12.00pm, will be part of a stall at the Diamonds in the Sky Suicide Intervention Carnival at Innisfail State College.
