Renew Fest will celebrate its third anniversary this May, and earlybird tickets are available from January 8 until February 14.

The grassroots festival, to be held May 19 and 20 at the Mullum Showgrounds, is a celebration of collaborative action and the power of community for innovative sustainability projects.

This year’s theme will be ‘Deep listening’.

Festival director Ella Rose Goninan says, ‘With “deep listening” as our overarching theme this year, we are bringing care to all facets of the program to support a collective listening experience.’

‘As the guiding motive of Renew Fest is to give rise and celebration to collaborative actions of regenerative change, this year’s festival will be exploring the importance and place of deeply listening to life as we seek to bring renewal to the story of our environmental humanity.’

Last year’s festival patron and internationally acclaimed heart-to-heart parenting advocate Robin Grille is thrilled to be returning once again for Renew Fest 2018.

Warm and uplifting

Mr Grille says, ‘I found Renew Fest 2017 to be a heart-warming and uplifting experience; in which we could see a truly new world clearly starting to take shape, with love, with excitement and with grounded possibility. The festival is a place to be recharged, to discover how powerful we are when we join together in vision for a transformed world.

‘I love Renew Fest for its “can do” energy, and for the sheer abundance and variety of “how tos”.

‘I am thrilled to be invited back to participate in this dynamic, nourishing and colourful festival in 2018.

‘And, most interestingly, the theme and emphasis of this year’s Renew Fest will have a surprising brand new twist…’

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.”
