Celebrate, discover and inspire
Art is a beautiful thing. It's a way for everyone to express themselves and grow through art, music, dance and storytelling. Art gives us the opportunity to let the imagination be free, to explore, discover and embrace.

Flourish Arts Festival for families, artists and artisans, musicians, dancers and storytellers will again set the magical scene bringing families and communities together through art in a vibrant community festival at the Southport Broadwater Parklands on Saturday, September 6th 2014.

Flourish was founded by the Southport Uniting Church as a way to connect people, says the Church Reverend Dona Spencer, a former arts teacher. "It promotes the arts as pathways for healing and growth for individuals, family and the community. Art is a wonderful tool for therapeutic self expression, " she says "The arts foster stronger self esteem, flexibility and ability to make decisions, not to mention an understanding and appreciation of beauty.
