With Renew Fest celebrating its fifth year in 2020, organisers are looking to a one week crowdfunding campaign from February 10 till 17, to make it happen.
The event is held at the Mullumbimby Showgrounds and is a ‘pioneering zero waste festival for ecological, economic and social renewal.’
Past events have featured keynote speakers, presentations from industry professionals, panels, Q&A and discussions, workshops, community group project launches, demonstrations, installations, Indigenous wisdom, youth and children’s programs, information stalls, food, art and live music performances.
Organiser Ella Rose Goninan says, ‘In 2020, Renew Fest is set to take you and your local and national communities deeper and further on the path to resilience and regenerative change.
‘But we need help to guarantee the festival has the budget to go ahead.
‘So we are calling on our community to pledge your early bird ticket/s in our special week-long crowdfunding campaign from February 10 till 17, to activate the fifth festival on the Mother’s Day weekend of May 8 to 10, 2020.
‘We require a minimum of 600 full festival pledges for the festival to go ahead!’
Ella says all ticket pledges will only be processed if the full budget target is met.
Early bird full festival passes are $100, a saving of up to $50 off a full price festival pass. Early bird one day passes are $60, which can be used on either Saturday or Sunday.
Ella says, ‘By pledging, you will secure an early bird ticket, save money on a full price ticket, be part of the visionary early birders who make this festival happen for 2020, and enjoy the bundle of warm inner glow and outer action for our community in this fundraising phase, the lead up to and at the festival itself.’
