On Friday 29th September, together with The Townsville Art Society, we launched the Lost Artists of Palm Island Exhibition.

The event will display artworks from the 40+ tribes of the Palm Island and Bwgcolman people to showcase their talents in a way that has not been done on Palm Island before.

 We want to highlight the incredible talents of our people and provide them with an opportunity they may not have had otherwise. – Nathan Vinson, Campbell Page CDP Operations Manager

The month-long exhibition will host artworks from popular local artists such as Ian Palmer (artwork featured above) at the Art at the Jezzine Gallery seven days a week from 10 am to 4 pm until October 27th. Click here to visit the event page.

At Campbell Page, we believe that no-one should be denied the opportunity of secure employment. Our Community Development Programme (CDP) is our remote employment and community development service. We have made it our mission to provide the Palm Island community with access to the opportunity of sustainable employment.
