    Paperbark October 2021

    Paperbark header

    As another massive month comes to a close, it is important to reflect on the powerful local actions that have taken place in our little corner of the world. 

    As you are reading this, Scott Morrison is representing us in the Glasgow climate talks, where he expects to get away with shallow promises and dodgy deals to save face among world leaders, all the while abandoning his responsibility to protect Australia's people and ecosystems.

    Meanwhile, we've seen North Queenslanders take real action to stand up for nature in so many wonderful ways. Through meetings, media, submissions, strikes, artworks, clean ups and petitions, people like you have made a real difference, and we couldn't be more proud of our community.

    NQCC Art Auction 2021

    On Saturday 9th October we saw the end to our four week Postcard Art Exhibition and the beginning of an exciting Fundraising Auction Night!

    Art and environment lovers attended the event at Umbrella Studio of Contemporary Art (Townsville City), where each of the 125 artworks generously donated by artists from around the country were auctioned off for prices ranging from $10 to $160. The pieces were approximately postcard-size and created with our "Nature: the wonder and the tragedy" exhibition title in mind. Artworks are still available to peruse in our online gallery here.
