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?
Now a coalition of Byron shire community groups is giving a shout out to local artists and performers to donate some of their work and possibly profit in the process.
They’ve chosen Wednesday, March 21, the autumn equinox, to hold a special gathering in Mullumbimby.
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 grass roots, 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, quality 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 Mullum-style gathering a success, the group is seeking stallholders, artists and musicians who would like to be a part of it.
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.
