New 10 Day Arts and Culture Festival for the Sunshine Coast Horizon Sunshine Coast festival of arts and culture is a new region-wide creative collaboration that is set to entertain and inspire with 10 days of artistic events, exhibitions, visual arts, film, street art, poetry, music, dance, new media, workshops and more.
Acting Mayor Councillor Tim Dwyer said Horizon was created to showcase the diverse talents of our artistic community.
“I’m excited to officially announce the upcoming Horizon Sunshine Coast festival of arts and culture,” Cr Dwyer said.
“A cultural festival of this kind has long been discussed on the Coast and I’m proud to see it come to fruition.
“Horizon was created to showcase our talented artistic community and provide a platform for them to share their talents with the Sunshine Coast community and visitors.
“Many months of planning have gone in to bringing this festival together and I’d like to thank everyone involved.
“Horizon kicks off on Friday, September 2 in Caloundra with a free community event consisting of a lantern parade, art-making, film, projections, music and food so mark it in your diary and make sure you come along.”
Horizon Sunshine Coast events, performances and activities will be held throughout the region including Nambour, Kenilworth, Coolum, Maroochydore and Eumundi.
Horizon will also provide support for a number of well-established events including the Caloundra Film Festival and Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival.
“It’s great to also support established events such as the Caloundra Film Festival, which has already been making a name for itself, and with more events still coming on board the program is shaping up to provide a fantastic 10 days - whether you are into film, writing, dance, music or traditional art,” Cr Dwyer said
Caloundra Film Festival Director Murray Power said this year’s festival would have something for everyone.
"This year the Caloundra Film Festival, in partnership with Horizon, will feature its largest program yet, with events planned for Caloundra, Nambour and Maleny," Mr Power said.
"With film premieres, red carpets, director's Q&A's, pop-up cinemas and first time events, this year’s film festival will have something to please everyone."
Keep your eye on the Horizon for more exciting partner and event announcements over the coming weeks. The full Horizon Sunshine Coast program will be released in August. ... See MoreSee Less
Finding Dory meets Sealife Mooloolaba The popularity of Finding Nemo led to a 90 per cent fall in populations of clownfish worldwide and has created an added threat to the reef environment. With the sequel Finding Dory hitting the screens, SEA LIFE Mooloolaba is sending the message that an aquarium is the best place to discover the Dory fish, a species known as regal or blue tang, without contributing to harming populations of the tropical saltwater species.
An interactive quiz trail will entertain the kids as they learn about conservation and protecting Dory’s home, as well as the easy things they can do to help preserve our reefs and coastlines, and why it’s important to go to your local ZAA-accredited aquarium to enjoy our saltwater fish friends.
Tara MoodieI want to know what stance each of you take on the live export issue. I am appalled this has been allowed to continue as long as it has.

Mark MossWhy would we believe Andrews comments on doors opening in Canberra when for the last 25+ years Slipper and Brough could have opened every door in Canberra twice??

Sg PerryI think its a bit arrogant and presumptious for Andrew to suggest we should vote for him because the current govt will get in so he'll be able to get things done. It didnt help the area when we had Mal Brough.
