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.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
