Ever felt like you wanted to howl at the full moon? Well now is your chance.

In an artistic response and protest against the eleven story – approximately 35 meter high – ski jump that has been proposed for Lake Ainsworth the Lennox Arts Board Inc. (LAB) is hosting a group Howl of Protest.

Melissa Wright, LAB Vice President, said that the group is appalled at the proposal which will desecrate our unspoiled coastline. 

‘The Howl of Protest is an opportunity for people to express their outrage at this ridiculous proposal,’ said Melissa.

‘Locals and visitors love Lennox for its small-town vibe and natural beauty. This ski-jump will negatively effect the very thing that they love about the village.’

The howl will be an art event featuring performance artists and the group Howl will be recorded by a filmmaker.

Dogs on leads are invited and attendees are asked, as this is a solemn occasion, to wear black. 

The howl, timed to take place on the full moon, will be held on Thursday 11 May at 5pm in front of the Lennox Head Surf Lifesaving Club.

For information see the Lennox Arts Board Facebook page.
