Today we visited the local Bleach festival, a celebration of the visual and performing arts and beach culture.
We saw that one of the stands was for the ABC Open service, provided by our national broadcaster, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
ABC Open is dedicated to providing a way for people in “regional Australia”, i.e. those of us who live outside the big cities, to produce and publish photos, stories, videos, and sound, via the ABC.
At the ABC Open stand for the festival they had a surfboard, lots of colored markers and an invitation to write a message on the board. The format of the message was to be:
(beach name) is the best beach
Clearly a job for Suzie the artist.
Suzie leapt at the chance to celebrate our favorite local beach at Rainbow Bay.
As you can see from the picture, she wrote “Rainbow is the best beach because it is peaceful and full of spirit.”
