Warning: Northern Rivers Rail Trail not ready yet

Love or hate it, the Northern Rivers Rail Trail is under construction and the community is being urged to wait until it is safe for public use.

Enjoy the annual show this Friday November 11 from 6–8pm at 22 Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby.

Local artists who are part of REDinc, a disability support service, will be exhibiting as part of their annual show this Friday November 11 from 6–8pm at 22 Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby. 

Each year, they offer a diverse and eclectic range of art for sale that they have been working on throughout the previous year. The sales income is split between the artists and funding their next year’s art program. 

This year the exhibition will be opened by local dynamic drawing teacher, Ron Curran, who has encouraged and inspired many artists in the region. 

REDinc is a not-for-profit, grassroots community organisation and registered NDIS provider and offers a wide range of services for people with disability. REDinc has been established for nearly 30 years in the local community on the north coast and was originally established in 1991 by a group of parents of school leavers with disabilities who were concerned at the lack of opportunities.
