The days are starting to get longer, our humpback friends are playing in the Bay in bumper numbers and Our Fraser Coast Scene is chocked full of things to do this Spring. I am very excited to introduce the Fraser Coast Arts and Cultural Person of the Month Awards honouring people in the region engaged in creative and cultural activities. Find out more and how to nominate on page 22. Aspiring authors, keen readers, and anyone interested in being entertained by some fascinating speakers will love the return of Fraser Coast Libraries' Lines in the Sand in September. It is an honour to have prominent Australian journalist and author, Kerry O'Brien as this year’s keynote speaker. All talks and workshops during the festival are free so bookings are essential. September also sees the return of Maryborough Open House and Garden with a weekend full of interesting buildings and beautiful gardens to explore. Music and theatre lovers are also in for a treat with a varied program of world class entertainment coming to the Brolga. Highlights include the Imperial Russian Ballet performing Swan Lake, true-blue Aussie icon John Williamson and for the young and young at heart the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre brings Roald Dahl's The Twits to life.Brolga Theatre & Convention Centre 5 Walker Street, Maryborough Phone 4122 6060Since opening at the end of June, The Story Bank has been charming visitors from near and far.

From ceramic to polymer clay sculpture, paper and fibre objects to mixed media assemblage, the display features a beautiful mix of themes and subject matters. Not having a specific theme for the exhibition allows each of the participating artist to tell their own story. One clay sculptor has created figures of children effected by war verses those that come from a nurturing environment, while a woodturner has transformed a piece of African Mahogany salvaged from Cylcone Rosetta into a magnificent dolphin. Other items will include glass designs and jewellery, awardwinning art dolls, found item objects, handmade books and more. The exhibition will feature a People's Choice Award with visitors able to vote for the piece they find the most appealing.
