Arts Competition 2023 – U3A Network Queensland

Art Collage - 'Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow'

U3A Network Queensland Arts Competitions have proved to be a huge success both as a competition to reward U3A artists but also as an Arts Exhibition at U3A Network State Conferences. The 2023 Arts Competition & Exhibition is shaping up to be even bigger and better, and will be a major part of the next State Conference in Rockhampton 8 -12 May 2023.

Now in the initial stages of preparation for the competition opening on 1st February 2023, organisers of this the 50th Anniversary Network State Conference are already planning for the Arts Competition to be a major part of the Conference.

Network President Rhonda Weston AM is delighted that the talents of our U3A members will be recognised in the Arts Competition and would really appreciate U3A Presidents, Secretaries and Tutors helping to ‘get the word out’ about the competition and the State Conference.

“This is a great opportunity to showcase the artistic talents of members in our local U3As, and as this State Conference in Rockhampton marks the 50th Anniversary of the U3A movement worldwide it promises to be a major event with international and national guests joining us for this anniversary event.”

Network Queensland would appreciate local U3As downloading the Arts Competition Flyer and circulating it to their members.
