ARCH – Arts Recovery Community Hub

Lismore Art Space & Work-Shop Northern Rivers is really happy to be supporting this fantastic initiative for Lismore as the community begins to recover from such a massive and destructive flood event. Called ARCH – Arts Recovery Community Hub – it will be launching tomorrow from 12 – 3pm at the Railway Station in South Lismore.

We’ll be popping up there tomorrow to LIVE Screen Print some Heart Patches! Drop by and get a demo or have a go at screen-printing a heart patch. Or bring your own t-shirt and get the heart design printed to wear! There will be lots going on including music and other creative work-shops to take part in.

Why ARCH?

Now that the initial crisis of The Flood is subsiding, we as individuals and as a community are entering the next stage of recovery – looking at ways to reconnect, reflect and share our experiences to make sense of what has happened, to articulate our stories of loss and express ourselves in a way that words alone can not do

This is where the arts can play a crucial role in the process to create a tangible reminder that celebrates and also builds on the resilience of our community! Based at the old RAILWAY STATION in South Lismore, ARCH will bring together local artists and community to create art, share stories and look at ways to move forward together.

A partnership between ARTS Northern Rivers, RealArtWorks and Lismore Council.

ARCH is currently looking for local artists to take part! If you would like to facilitate a workshop next Thursday 12-3pm (or any day they’re there at the Station…) or you just want to get involved in some way, get in touch with Sunita at sunita@realartworks.org
