MAY 2013 marks 40 years since a bunch of students and hippies set up camp at Nimbin for a little something called the Aquarius Festival.
A book of photos and stories called Rainbow Dreaming: Tales from the Age of Aquarius is being produced to mark the anniversary of the famous festival, but just like The Beatles, it needs a little help from its friends.
The book is based on a travelling exhibition that shows the growth of the sustainability movement in the rainbow region of New South Wales.
Curated by Harsha Prabhu, it has been on display at the 40th anniversary of Woodstock in 2009, and also in Central Park, NYC, the Woodstock Museum, NY, and other venues in the USA and Australia.
To get 2000 copies of the 40th anniversary book published, they need to raise $15,000. Harsha is trying to do this through the crowd-funding site Pozible.
"By supporting this project, you will not only help spread this message of 'peace and love and brown rice', but also help seed the Nimbin Sustainability Hub project, which will house and showcase lots of the practical know-how and insights to sustainable living to everyone who visits (in person and via the web)."
