A group of artists with disabilities are preparing for their maiden art expo which will be held in Mullumbimby next month.

The five artists are all clients of REDinc Byron Shire, which has been serving the Byron Shire community for nearly ten years, and recently moved to Mullumbimby.

The artists, most of whom have autism and physical disabilities, have been working with art therapists to prepare their works to go on display.

REDinc. Byron Shire Manager, Stacey Cannicott said the expo would take place at 22 Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby, on Friday, 10 November from 6pm.

‘There has been some truly amazing art produced by the REDinc. artists with a disability and this event is an opportunity for the local community to come and enjoy their work,’ Ms Cannicott said.

‘We welcome locals to come and join us for drinks, nibbles and art.’

REDinc., established nearly 30 years ago by families, continues to serve the communities of the North Coast of NSW; with venues in both Lismore and Mullumbimby.

The Mullumbimby branch currently has 19 clients.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
