Get involved in a three-day arts event this October
COME along to the Lismore Library tomorrow at 11.30am to get involved in an arts project that brings the buildings on the corner of the Magellan and Keen streets to life.
The project is called The Homecoming and it's a three-day event in October with open air concerts, workshops, exhibitions, multimedia projections and live performance.
Tomorrow is the launch of a post box at the Lismore Library foyer, inviting community members to share stories about the buildings.
Anyone with a connection to them or who simply wants to be part of the festival are invited to go along, have a chat and send a postcard to family or friends who may have their own story and would like to take part as collaborators and spectators.
Postcards are available from the library, the Lismore Visitor Information Centre, council buildings, the Northern Rivers Conservatorium (NRC) or the Lismore Regional Gallery.
For anyone who can't make it tomorrow, postcards and the post box will remain in the foyer until October.
"Local artists and musicians are creating an exciting work that celebrates the diversity of the Lismore population," RealArtWorks creative director Zeb Schulz said.
"Past, present and future users of the buildings on the corner of Magellan and Keen streets in Lismore are encouraged to join us on a collective journey of how we connect with them as individuals and groups."
The buildings have seen many lives, including Lismore High School, Sister Web Circus, Goohah Goobah Theatre, UNE Northern Rivers, Young and Powerful School.
They are currently occupied by the Northern Rivers Conservatorium, Lismore Regional Library and RealArtWorks' SeeSpace.
The three organisations are working together on this community arts project.
