Redlanders are invited to chat about a new exhibition highlighting what people love about the Redlands at the Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland at 10am on Sunday, June 17.

The floor talk and morning tea is with exhibition curator, Emma Bain.

Redland City Mayor, Karen Williams said the #luvRedlands exhibition drew inspiration from more than 4,800 residents and visitors who shared what they felt was unique to the Redlands as part of a 10- month city brand project.

Showcasing artworks from the RAG Collection, #luvRedlands is a fun and playful way of engaging with visitors of all ages while telling some of the stories behind the new place brand.

“Redlands has emerged with an exciting new identity following consultation with about 5000 locals, business owners and visitors. The brand positioning statement, ‘Redlands Coast – naturally wonderful’ emerged from the research and was the clear choice among participants in the engagement,” Cr Williams said.

“We are excited to be embarking on a new journey to deliver a Redlands story that will support business, attract trade and investment, open up tourism opportunities and build on our already strong community pride.” 

The new name “Redlands Coast” is for marketing purposes and does not change the name of the city or replace the Redland City Council name or logo.
