NIMBIN COMMUNITY CENTRE NEWS February 2018
Hey everyone – Happy New Year to you! On Friday 12 January the beautiful mural painted by Gilbert Laurie, Lewis Walker and Oral Roberts was unveiled before a large crowd of villagers at Allsop Park in Nimbin. This is a wonderful work of real local cultural significance.
It was a beautiful day and what a celebration! Gilbert told us all the story of the painting and what it means. For many of us it filled out some of the gaps in our knowledge of our story. As Gilbert said, it is a gift to our community, and will be probably be the most photographed mural in all of Australia.
In future, there will be a plaque with the story so that it can be read and understood by anyone who visits. We are in consultation with the relevant people to create and erect this, and further look forward to having a small roof built to protect the mural we are all so very proud of.
PROTECTING EXISTING MURALS
The warrior mural painted on the wall of the Nimbin Bakery facing Armonica Cafe is currently being restored by Elspeth Jones and was funded by the Nimbin Community School. Thanks to Elspeth and the Comskool, for helping to preserve the work of one of our own much loved artists, Burri Jerome, for future generations to appreciate.
We have a couple of new tenants to welcome into the Community Centre – we welcome Chris Robb who has taken over Zeebooks. The bookshop has a new crisp look and Chris is busy getting to know all of his new (and past) customers. We also welcome Adam Richmond who is now in what was known as the old youth club. He’s given it a lick of paint and is working with stones and precious gems and welcomes interested people to see what he’s doing in there. He will be conducting workshops in the future.
We also say goodbye and a big thank you to Wayne Cuthbertson who has successfully run his Community Gym here for several years.
DANCE STUDIO/BIRTH AND BEYOND
We have a fairly full program of casual hirers at the Dance Studio and Birth and Beyond. There are several yoga and dance classes to choose from and from February there will also be a juggling class and a Sevillanas dance class. Check out our calendar at http://www.nimbincommunity.org.au/index.php/calendar/month.calendar/2018/01/22/-
Alternately if you’d like to hire any of these rooms to run a program, please contact either Inez or Biko (co-ordinators) at the Community Centre office on 6689 0000.
