Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution by setting the challenge to refuse single use plastics for one month.

The Shire of Augusta Margaret River invites the community to take part in a number of free workshops to learn tips and tricks to reduce waste, as part of Plastic Free July.

To help raise awareness the Margaret River Library is showcasing a range of the products created with recycled plastic lids from Precious Plastic Margaret River.

Come to the library and learn how lids turn into bowls, planters and surfboard fins, and get information on where you can take your lids for recycling.

Rabbit In the Moon : an exhibition of works by Jara Gillick-Lewis

From May 4th to June 30th the Cocoon Gallery for Emerging Artists will display works by Jara Gillick-Lewis, in her exhibition Rabbit in the Moon.

Exhibition launch: Thursday May 6th, 6 – 7pm. Live music and light refreshments provided. All welcome!

Jara is a local visual artist working with a diverse range of mediums including illustration, ink, water colour and spray paint. Her illustrations of the natural world celebrate the inextricable complexity and simplicity inherent in nature. The splashes of colour and stains throughout her work represent the fluidity of nature itself and our perceptions. She has facilitated many large-scale street art projects with disengaged youth as part of various community-based initiatives over the last ten years. With a deep respect for art and its power to transform others she is always using it as a catalyst for positive change.

For sales and enquiries or to RSVP please contact the artist: jj.chicksworldtv@gmail.com or on Instagram Jarandfrankiemr
