Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The Sol of Mullumbimby

I love walking through cemeteries. I love to read the gravestones. They are like the first and last page of a novel whose contents I will never know. Here lies many from my community; they were born, lived, and then lost. They were loved. This evening I am walking with my 11-year-old daughter and my husband through Mullumbimby’s cemetery. It is a quiet and beautiful place. I feel the stories rumbling under our feet. I never understand why people see these places as creepy. They are places of reverence and remembering.

Two of the region’s higher education providers have combined forces.

The Southern Cross University Study Centre opened last week at SAE Creative Media Institute’s Byron Bay campus, providing SCU students and staff who live in the Byron area with a space to study and work, and the opportunity to network with peers.

Plans are in place to explore ongoing collaboration in creative media. The partners also aim to convene a strategic roundtable and public forum.

Also coming up at SAE will be a free event for creative business owners on Wednesday November 9 from 5.30pm.

Guest speaker is creative specialist Tony Hughes from the UK department of international trade – he is scouting for innovative brands and technology providers.

The focus of his talk will be on gaming, virtual/augmented reality, R&D and startups.
