The dream lives on
The Nimbin Aquarius Festival of 1973 was a watershed event in the creation of the alternative movement in Australia. It was a movement that embraced community living, appropriate technology, holistic healing and environmental activism. The new age lifestyle was born and the alternative movement gave a name to this region the Rainbow Region.
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Aquarius Festival a photo-documentary exhibition called Some Children of the Dream explores the legacy of the alternative movement and will be on display at the Nimbin Regional Gallery from May 10-25.
Curated by Harsha Prabhu and Graeme Batterbury for Nimbin Rainbow Collective, opening night this Saturday, May 10, will feature performances by local musos Diana Anaid, Lisa Yeates and Neil Pike. And exotic dance by Deb.
The celebration starts at 6pm.
