Byron Council has taken a further step toward getting cars out of, and pedestrians into, the centre of Byron, by voting to introduce car-free Sundays.

NORPA (Northern Rivers Performing Arts) marked the end of its 2012 season last week with the world premiere performance of Symphony by acclaimed physical theatre company Legs On The Wall (pictured). NORPA also announced plans to re-stage their locally produced work Railway Wonderland at Lismore train station in 2013 and celebrated news of two funding grants from Arts NSW – $50,000 Regional Partnerships Grant and $250,000 Annual Program Funding. The Regional Partnerships grant will assist a creative project with Multitask (a disability service provider) and Tralala Blip, a Lismore-based electronic sound art music collective for people with a disability, to create a new performance work with NORPA called My Radio Heart.
