ONE BILLION RISING REVOLUTION 2018: SOLIDARITY

As the sun rises on Main Beach on Wednesday 14th February, local women, children and men will gather again, rising up and dancing for a global revolution to end the epidemic of male violence against women and children. 

Wednesday 14 Feb, 6.30am for a 7.30am dance, Main Beach Byron Bay.

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. 

Byron Bay has its own high incidence of sexual assault and V Day is a great opportunity for us to find our voices in protest, by being a part of this pivotal moment, instead of thinking the problem is elsewhere. 

One Billion Rising provides an important opportunity for women and men to step up, speak up and be part of the solution, taking a stand against any male violence against women. Previous years saw hundreds of women and children dance together in Byron, reminding everyone of the importance of equal rights, and freedom. 

Come along, and be a part of this global movement saying ‘END all violence against women and children’. The world is stirring and enough is enough.

Here's  great video of the 2013 event on Main Beach Byron Bay

Byron Bay Naked Bike Ride 2017

Join thousands of ‘biketivists’ around the world on a clothing-optional bike ride around Byron Bay on 12 March for the World Naked Bike Ride 2017.

The World Naked Bike Ride is the largest naked protest in the world, with events held in over 74 cities in 17 countries around the globe. The event supports a number of different causes, from environmental issues to body positivity.

Firstly, the protest aims to spread awareness of cyclists and pedestrians on the road. Participating biketivists advocate for bike-friendly roads and footpaths in our towns and cities to ensure the safety riders and walkers.

Secondly, the World Naked Bike Ride protests against the use of unsustainable fossil fuels, citing the damaging effects they have on our environment and the health of our planet’s population.

Finally, not only does the clothing-optional dress code garner attention, it calls for body acceptance, confidence and positivity from both riders and onlookers.

Join the protest this year in Byron Bay on Sunday, March 12. Meet fellow riders at 1.30pm at Railway Station, Byron Bay, before embarking on a liberating cycle around town. The protest will last around 30 minutes.

The bike ride will be short and easy. Riders of any fitness level are welcome to join. Finally, nakedness is not compulsory – go as bare as you dare!

Keep up to date with the event by joining the Facebook Group here: www.facebook.com/groups/8999913451/

Spell & The Gypsy Collective's Byron Bay Boutique

Spell & The Gypsy Collective, a loved and internationally recognised local brand, has come along way since its humble beginnings. The founders of Spell, sisters Isabella (nicknamed Spell) and Elizabeth, began selling handmade jewellery and clothing at the Byron Bay markets. From there, the bohemian brand gained traction and took off.

A far cry from the 4x4 market tent, the Byron Bay boutique at 15 Browning Street is mix of new and old, natural and manmade, the striking space embodies the carefree, gypsy character Spell is known and loved for.

The store’s arbours are made from timber reclaimed from the old Bangalow Bridge – an authentic nod to the history of the Byron region. Alongside the antler light, new hoop lamps adorned with feathers add a DIY element to the space. And, a small kids play area was included to give mums peace-of-mind as they shop.

Finally, a secluded mezzanine level provides shoppers looking for a little more privacy a place to try on Spell’s clothing. This unique shopping experience was designed to make customers feel right at home, as if they were in their own bedroom.

Many of Spell’s loyal customers experience the brand online – whether that be through their active social media accounts, their popular blog, or their online store. The new boutique gives shoppers a tangible experience of the brand, something real and authentic in the heart of Byron Bay.

Evan Malcolm's environmental film 'Lapse of Reason'

Byron Bay based photographer and filmmaker receives International recognition at The Timelapse Film Festival for short environmental documentary film 'Lapse Of Reason’.

Lapse of Reason from Evan Malcolm on Vimeo.

Byron Bay based photographer and documentary filmmaker Evan Malcolm’s short environmental documentary film ‘Lapse of Reason’ has received official selection and has gone on to become a Finalist in the ‘Documentary / Social Commentary’ category at The International Timelapse Festival to be held on August 13, 2016 at The Aero Theatre, Santa Monica, California. His unreleased film ‘Outlapsed’ also received official selection.

The captivating short environmental documentary, which was shown at the Byron Bay Film Festival in 2015, was selected by a world-class panel of judges renowned for their passion, creativity and leadership in the time-lapse art-form. The judges included Godfrey Reggio, Director of the 'Qatsi Trilogy': 'Koyaanisqatsi', ‘Powaqqatsi' and ‘Naqoyqatsi'.

'Lapse of Reason' will be screened at The Timelapse Festival Award Ceremony on August 13 to both industry peers and the general public. It's a significant career milestone for the Byron Bay-based documentary filmmaker to be acknowledged for his creative work at an international level.

“It is such a privilege to be recognised by some of my peers in time-lapse and documentary film-making, including Godfrey Reggio who directed ‘Koyaanisqatsi', probably the most important film in the evolution of time-lapse film-making” said Evan. “To be screened alongside the leading time-lapse film-makers in the world on an international stage is quite frankly, mind blowing”.

The audience for time-lapse films has grown worldwide and continues to be a passion for Evan’s current and planned projects.

Splendour In The Grass In Byron for 2012 !

Yes that's right. Splendour In The Grass is planning to return to Byron Bay for the 2012 event.

The dates for the 2012 event are Friday 27, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July.

After two years at Woodfordia in Queensland, Splendour In The Grass organisers are currently working on taking Australia's premier winter music and arts festival back to where it all started, Belongil Fields in Byron Bay.

"Despite great efforts to have the festival at North Byron Parklands this year, we are yet to have a determination on the application." said Splendour Co-Producer Jessica Ducrou.

"In the meantime and after much consideration we are excited at the prospect of returning to the birth place of Splendour."

One of Australia's premier holiday locations, Byron Bay is internationally renowned for its beautiful beaches, lush hinterland and laid back culture.

Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham has welcomed Splendour back to Byron Bay for 2012.

"Splendour's home is Byron Bay and there is defined benefit that the festival delivers to the area, especially in winter, so it is a welcome return" said Mayor Barham

"Taking the event back to Byron Bay allows us to give our audience the true Splendour experience, a quality music and arts festival combined with that distinctive Byron culture." Ms Ducrou said.

"We'd like to thank Woodfordia and the very wonderful Bill Hauritz, Mayor Allan Sutherland and Moreton Bay Regional Council for welcoming us with open arms and hosting our event for the last two years."
