A Māori Cultural Fun Day will be held on Saturday November 17.

Logan Art Gallery and exhibiting artists from the He kākano āhau (I am a seed) exhibition invite the community to join them for a fun day of Māori culture.

City Lifestyle and Community Chairperson, Councillor Steve Swenson, said a Māori Cultural Fun Day would be held next Saturday (17 November) as part of the current exhibition.

Cr Swenson said the fun day, from 10am to 2pm, would feature traditional food and drink, artists' talks, storytelling, art activities and market stalls.

“There will also be a fashion show and a host of entertainment from performers and more,” he said.

“This is a free event so all are welcome.”

Cr Swenson said the contemporary artwork exhibition was by eight local Māori artists.

“This wonderful exhibition, which runs until November 24, highlights Māori art practices and gives an insight into Māori culture,” he said.

“We want to encourage the community to visit the gallery and see this wonderful exhibition for themselves.”

The project has been supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between Logan City Council and the Queensland Government to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

The Logan Art Gallery is located on the corner of Wembley Rd and Jacaranda Ave, Logan Central and is open between 10am and 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.
