THE COMMUNITY will unite on Saturday to celebrate flood recovery at Maryborough's Queens Park.

The free event starts at 4pm and is part of Afloat, a community story-telling initiative, with all food, drinks and parking proceeds going to support local not-for-profit organisations affected or involved in the recovery.

There will be plenty of entertainment, with recovery-themed short films, performances by local and regional artists and digital animations.

Join in by making woven umbrella sculptures at Gatakers Artspace on Thursday or basket weaving at Queens Park on Saturday. The umbrellas, chosen for Maryborough's Mary Poppins connection and symbolic of rain, will light up the park on Saturday.

They will then be exhibited at Gatakers Artspace, with the launch of Empowered! the exhibition on Friday July 4.

To get involved contact Ainsley Gatley at afloat@creativeregions.com.au.
