Time to ride the election cycle

Bicycle advocacy is vanishingly rare in our community. Amid all the noise about net zero, my search for bicycle advocate candidates to vote for on Saturday only turned up vague references to ‘reducing our reliance on cars’ and ‘increasing public transport connectivity’. The closest thing to policy was: ‘It’s time to create bike paths all over the Shire.’

Arts Northern Rivers has appointed highly-regarded local producer Jane Fuller to the role of Executive Director.

Ms Fuller is no stranger to those working in and around the local arts industry, and those in the Indigenous arts sector more generally.

She has worked extensively in the Northern Rivers region as an independent producer, Placemaking Producer for the Lismore Quad, Festival Producer for the Boomerang Festival (Bluesfest) and Programming Manager for NORPA (Northern Rivers Performing Arts).
Most recently Jane has worked as the Grants and Festival Producer for First Nations Media Australia, responsible for the Koori Mail’s 30-year celebrations.
This continued a long relationship with Indigenous arts, including a stint as the General Manager for BlakDance – the national Peak Organisation for First Nations dance – from 2014-2018.
‘We are delighted to welcome Jane to the organisation to take up this important role delivering arts and cultural services and projects for the Northern Rivers region of NSW,’ the Chair of Arts Northern Rivers, Elly Bird said.
‘As our communities continue to traverse the uncertain impacts of COVID-19, Arts Northern Rivers will be there every step of the way to continue to support and nurture our artists and arts organisations.
‘Jane will be a real asset to Arts Northern Rivers and to communities and arts workers across our region.’
Ms Fuller’s other roles include Executive Producer for Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM), Associate Producer for the Australian Cultural Festival, Australian Embassy, Jakarta and Executive Producer for the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, Bali.

Last mayoral candidates Q and A: are you a landlord?

Here at The Echo we have seen and heard the word ‘housing’ come up time and again throughout the local government election campaign period, whether it’s from candidates or other voters.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
