Arts Bundaberg team members Kyle Schneider and Rhys Williams run through the moves to TikTok Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious dance step-by-step.

The packs contain a variety of local resources including a children’s book from the library for local kids to enjoy.

The Arts Bundaberg team is made up of Council staff from Moncrieff Entertainment Centre, Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, and Bundaberg Regional Libraries who are helping to keep creativity flowing during the current Coronavirus regulations.

With a number of Council facilities closed because of the Coronavirus regulations, staff were eager to help reduce the community burn-out that could occur amid social isolation and came up with a number of creative projects.

Before Easter, 100 art packs were sent to patrons of the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre and Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery and after a positive response from recipients, the Arts Bundaberg team have prepared 100 more to be given to the Bundaberg Hospital.

Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey said the art packs would go to sick kids in the childrens’ ward and the children of medical staff.

“The packs contain turtle artwork, stickers and resources from Council’s Waste and Recycling team and a flipbook,” he said.

Printable activities were also available online here. Follow Arts Bundaberg on Facebook by searching #artsbundyathome.
