We would like to take this opportunity to announce the inaugural Byron Shire Pothole Festival titled ‘Are Potholes Blackholes?’ This will be a multimedia arts, culture and science festival held over three days in November this year.

The heart of the festival will be the continuation of the Byron Shire council-supported pothole-painting activity, with a prize for the most original new artistic contribution. A local entrepreneur is supporting a theatre sports improvisation competition on the topic Fishing in Potholes.

Where our festival gets really exciting is the forum, already with a lineup of renowned local and international speakers. Local writer Ray Lindabury will give the Snow White Memorial lecture, where he explores the connection between new fracking signs and the ever-increasing appearance of new potholes.

International speakers include economist Milton Freedom speaking provocatively on What relevance does Neo-Liberalism have on or to Potholes? and physicist Brian Green Might Potholes be a Gateway to the Multiverse? If you would like more information visit pothole.
