Lone Goat Gallery and Byron Shire Council are calling for artists to explore the theme of ‘Adaptation’ through a new project called Climate Conversations. Adaptation is an act or process of change to become better suited to an environment or situation. Artists can submit innovative ideas that will engage the community and can be presented around this theme. Artists will receive a fee of $5,000 to fund the project with an additional budget for community events. The successful project will take place in 2023 at Lone Goat Gallery in Byron Bay and the community will be invited to take part in the process and view the final outcome.
The expression of interest is open to all Northern Rivers artists, art producers and artist teams and the organisers encourage anyone interested in this opportunity to apply via www.lonegoatgallery.com.
Applications close on 30 November 2022.

Enjoy great world art and hilarious National Theatre Live on the big screen at Byron Theatre. No painter in the world is both more famous and less known than Edvard Munch. If his ‘Scream’ has become the iconic symbol of our contemporary angst, the rest of his art is less familiar. Munch: Love, Ghosts and Lady Vampires explores the work of this enigmatic artist. Wednesday 19 October, 2pm. Laugh your socks off at Jack Absolute Flies Again, a rollicking new comedy by Richard Bean.
