The project enhances the development of local artists and benefits the local community through encouragement, realisation and exhibition of local talent. It is auspiced by Cooloola Human Services Network and entirely self funded through tuition fees and fundraising efforts. The group meets each week at the Gympie Regional Gallery. Classes are extremely popular and well attended.

Techniques include painting, craft, clay, theatre and a variety of specialist tutors attend to share their skills.

How does CHSN assist the community?

It was the hard work of CHSN that helped create Gympie Community Gardens along with Cooinda Aged Care Centre and Queensland Health. CHSN auspiced Gympie Community Garden so we could receive funding only available to incorporated organisations. Not only has CHSN provided financial management of funds, but supported the project through promotion of events to their comprehensive database and with members physically helping and attending major events. Thank you.
