Creative Workshops + Brisbane Festival

Picabeen is excited to be a part of Brisbane festival in 2021. 

Picabeen will be hosting free Creative Workshops for LGBTQI+ seniors and allies. It is the perfect way to find your inner creative! 

Seniors from the LGBTQI+ community are invited to engage in creative workshops that lead to the inaugural Little Miss Lifetime pageant. Workshops in headwear and costume design, stories and movement, culminate in the pageant as part of Brisbane Festival’s Street Serenades, ‘At Our Place’ performance. Participation for the workshops is free but bookings are essential. 

Dates and times are as follows:

Wednesdays : 4th, 18th & 25th Aug. & 1st Sept. at 2pm-4pm 

Thursdays: 5th, 19th & 26th Aug. & 2nd Sept. at 2pm-4pm 

The Street Serenade performance is on the 3rd September at 4pm in Picabeen Park. All are welcome. For enquiries visit the centre at 22 Hoben Street, Mitchelton, call 3354 2555 or email Christine at info@picabeen.org.au

Volunteers Needed + Op Shop!

Picabeen is also calling for volunteers to help with some of their regular programs. The Thursday Art Class would welcome a volunteer to run weekly activities from 10am-12pm. The Tuesday BBQ needs people who are happy to cook up a snag or butter some rolls and they also require a volunteer to collect our bread from a bakery on Saturdays. These roles only take 1-2 hours of your time, and you can bring a friend to volunteer with!

Picabeen also has an Op shop on Gilston Street in Keperra. All the funds raised from the Op Shop go straight back into services that Picabeen runs. The Change Room is calling for more volunteers to help run the Op shop. Shifts are generally 4 hours either morning or afternoon and training is provided.

Picabeen is always thankful for the amazing contribution of our volunteers, and they can continue their services because of them!
