ARTS Northern Rivers has opened the Northern Rivers Creative popUp Shop, designed to promote our region's arts and creative industries.

The popUp shop is in the old Byron Library space on the corner of Lawson and Fletcher Sts in Byron Bay.

Featuring fashion designers Goddess of Babylon, printmaker Joanna Kambourian, visual artists Digby Moran and Kelly Sullivan, furniture designers Dirty Old Town, Hammer and Hand jewellers Helen Luna, Jen Banks, Lucill Atkins and Laura Shipp and Northern Rivers musicians The Starboard Cannons, The Lucky Wonders, Jimmy Dowling, Ilona Harker and Rebecca Ireland, organisers say the shop will offer customers a real taste of the amazing talent in our region.

The shop will be open for business until Sunday, April 28, after which it is packed up and moved to Sydney for a five-week tenancy in a popUp shop opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art in The Rocks.

The Rocks popUp will be a great opportunity to promote our regional creativity to a much wider audience.

Once the dust has settled on the Byron and Sydney projects the team has plans for similar popUp opportunities in Melbourne, Perth and hopefully even London.
