Have you wanted to do something to show your support for the #StopAdani movement but can’t quite come at tying yourself to the railway tracks?
A coalition of Byron Shire community groups is asking local artists and performers to donate some of their work for a special gathering in Mullumbimby on Wednesday, March 21 – the autumn equinox!
Power On, Stop Adani Northern Rivers and Mullumbimby Commons (Wildspace) are organising an afternoon artisan market and celebration.
All funds raised will go towards a feasibility study for Australia’s first grassroots, large-scale community-owned renewable energy generator, (a concentrated solar thermal generator proposed by Sol Reflections co-operative in Proserpine).
The event will feature a welcome to country, food, local ethical and creative small businesses, a camp fire, a child-friendly atmosphere, music and a large community raffle to benefit the community-energy project.
To make this gathering a success, the group is seeking stallholders, artists and musicians to take part. The space is free of charge and you can keep your earnings; they are asking only for a handmade creation for their fundraising raffle to support this alternative vision.
Those interested can email Hanna Navara at [email protected] or call Leon Hoffmann on 0431 755 220.
