The Murwillumbah Art Trail (MAT 18) has been growing from its early days when it ran on the cost of an oily rag’ to a key event on the regional calendar.

Currently they have found themselves in a bind and are asking the community to lend them a hand.

As the event develops it is spawning all sorts of interesting spin-offs and occasions. One of them is an art installation in the Budd Mitre10 car park at the same time there are laser light shows being projected,’ said Pat Miller, one of the organisers.

‘The art installation will be housed in two to four caravans – but there is a slight glitch – The Murwillumbah Art Trail doesn’t have any.’

The installations will involve poetry and paint, stories and sculpture attended by MAT18 volunteer staff. To house them the MAT18 organisers are appealing to residents to borrow the caravans.

‘Your caravan will be co-star with our art and artists to create a fun precinct that nobody would dream could exist,’ said creative director Dev Lengjel.

The Murwillumbah Art Trail 2018 runs from Mat 18 to May 27 – If you have a caravan that you could lend then during the event email [email protected] or contact MAT 18 on their Facebook page or website.
