Recently Trevor Mitchell came on board to assist Mark Tarahui with promoting the project and the exhibition. Trevor says I'm pleased to see success with the holding of the exhibition".

The exhibition depicts Caboolture and its region from the past to the present and into the future.

Many of the Artists who have contributed to this exhibition live either in Caboolture or its region.
