Art osmosis begins in Mur'bah

ART Osmosis kicked off with a spectacular display of colour, song and acrobatics on Saturday night at the Murwillumbah Showground.

The launch marked the start of an exciting new project that will bring the community's performing artists together on a regular basis to showcase the region's talent and claim a space for the community.

"The night was incredible," said organiser Kit Feuerriegel.

"The event was a meeting of minds, a chance to bond and create a team spirit for the community in the area of performing arts."

Ms Feuerriegel said the formation of an arts co-operative had seen the construction of a stage at the showground to allow for continued performances.

A small crew of volunteers has turned a shed into a state-of-the art performance venue.

"We wanted to secure a permanent space," Ms Feuerriegel said.

"The Murwillumbah Show Committee has been very supportive.

"The launch was our first fundraiser to help get money behind us for future events.

"Ideally we are looking to stage performances once a month in a wholesome environment where families can attend.

"It's important to get our youth involved."
