5 November 2015 More To Come in Living Coast Festival

 There are still heaps of events to come in the Coffs Coast’s very first Living Coast Festival.

Running throughout November and created to celebrate all things sustainable, alongside the natural beauty of the Bellingen, Coffs Harbour and Nambucca regions, the Festival combines practical workshops, talks, walks, plus fun and cultural happenings to get your creative juices flowing.

The headline event for the Bellingen region is the Bello Spring LEAF Learning Festival which is running events throughout the month. In Nambucca, the focus will be the Nambucca River Festival on 28-29 November in Macksville. The Festival includes water fun, water ski show, kayaks and paddle craft, raft racing, power boat races, as well as the Brian Cockbain Memorial Cycle Ride around the River.

Some of the cultural events you can enjoy include:

·         The Tern Up Sawtell Community Arts program, which includes an art exhibition, twilight street parade at the Sawtell Summer Session to welcome back the endangered Little Terns, a poetry and sand performance evening and a bird watching family picnic at Bonville Headland Sawtell.

·         A screening of films ‘The Sea and Me’ and ‘My Saltwater Sanctuary’ that feature Coffs Coast local identities, at the Bowraville Theatre.

·         A clothing swap event at the 2015 Fashion Exchange for Sustainability at North Coast TAFE.

·         A talk ‘From Crop to Shop’ on sustainable and ethical fashion at Wholly Organic as part of the Sawtell Summer Session.

·         A Collage Workshop for adults using natural and found materials at the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery.

·         An introduction to weaving with wools, silk, roving and raffia at ‘Colour Me Beetroot’ in Coramba to learn how to warp up onto a timber loom and explore different tapestry weaving techniques.

·         An evening floating lantern parade and street party with live music and dancing as a part of The Nambucca River Festival at Macksville.
