A discovery focused light festival in August hopes to attract locals and visitors to Lismore.

When the sun sets on Lismore’s CBD, Molesworth Street and its laneways will be transformed by contemporary light works that will inspire and ignite the imagination as Lismore City Council’s SHINE Festival.

Lismore City Council’s Mayor Vanessa Ekins said the four-night event between 19 and 22 August is designed to help reinvigorate the CBD.

‘I’m very excited by this innovative festival which I am sure will bring many people into Lismore after dark,’ she said.

‘It is all about supporting our local artists, businesses and local jobs.’

Small surprises and large scale projections

Audiences can expect the unexpected as a program of artists present bold new works ranging from small surprises, large scale projections, the telling of untold stories and immersive light installations that will reframe Lismore’s CBD.

The free event is made possible by a grant from the Federal Government’s Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery program.

Event Manager Valley Lipcer said SHINE will be a platform for artists to produce new experimental public works and for local and visiting audiences to experience the high-quality work being produced in the region.

‘I encourage local artists to submit an Expression of Interest to present a work at the festival. We’re interested in diverse voices and hearing from both emerging and established artists.’

Interested artists can make an Expression of Interest by going to www.yoursay.lismore.nsw.gov.au

EOI’s open Friday, 19 February and close on Tuesday, 23 March.

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
