Haymes has got Youturn covered

Haymes Paint has got us covered by sponsoring Youturn’s planned community art projects, commencing with a ground mural and pathways project at Tewantin.

The local paint company are kindly donating 20 litres of paint to brighten up our front façade, pathways and fence line, with Oldfields supplying rollers and brushes to our community artists working with local professional artists.

Urban street artist Sarah Sculley is leading a group of women and mothers from a Youturn holistic care program and together they have designed a large-scale ground mural.

This mural uses colours for energy, joy and calmness; and features the waterways running through Tewantin and natural elements to give voice to the women’s thoughts and hopes explains Susan Beaton, Youturn Donor Relations & Engagement Manager.

“I am really excited to see their vision painted which takes natural scenes to represent the pathway through life and the support Youturn offers people to move forward on their journey,” said Susan Beaton.

“I love how the ladies are creating a mood that is welcoming, a space for parents to feel calm and young children to get curious and everyone to feel uplifted,” she said.

Additional fencing, seating and art story boards incorporating the use of interactive technology is part of the concept proposed.

The pathway leading into the sitting area is inspired by inclusiveness and will draw sentiments from many cultures and identities to show oneness in humanity said Susan Beaton.

“Our Youturn workforce, as well as those people we support, come from many different backgrounds, cultures and language groups and we want people to contribute words on our theme of Oneness in Humanity, showing we are much stronger together and when we care for those around us,” said Susan Beaton.

The community art project(s) will also see Sarah Sculley teaming with award winning Aboriginal portrait artist Jandamarra Cadd whose vibrant and expressive art aims to bridge the storytelling divide between Aboriginal and mainstream Australia.

Kawana Shopping Centre and the Mirvac management team are kindly providing the wall for this upcoming young men’s street art project led by Sarah and Jandamarra.
