A weekend of magical moments

I want to congratulate Lisa Audus and her dedicated team for organising and giving us the Lismore Health and Herb Festival. What a marvellous event and a demonstration of what a living and healthy community can do with a common goal. Private enterprise, local government, healers, the arts, sustainable business, market traders and volunteers coming together to create something truly magical. I dont know what the economic benefits to Lismore are, but I spent a heap because of, and during the festival, and I am just one ratepayer.

The festival had something for everyone, every age group catered for; baby boomers and their obsession with health and well-being, the youths in the skate park admiring/drooling over our amazingly talented local young bands, or tiny-tots goggling at the sights and listening to the music in between tantrums.

Like every evolving festival it needs tweaking. This can only be achieved through having more festivals; festivals like this that can bring the community together in a safe environment.

I am going to invite the whole North Coast, Australia and the rest of the world to next years festival. I invite all the people of Lismore to do the same. I hope it will be on.

Good luck and all the best for next year.

Darmin Cameron

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
