GSAC Evacuation Centre to close from today

GSAC Evacuation Centre to close from today

The Emergency Operational Centre has agreed to consolidate the GSAC Evacuation Centre into the larger Southern Cross University Evacuation Centre from today.

Council set up the GSAC Evacuation Centre as a temporary ‘overflow’ centre for our flood-affected community.

The SCU facility, operated by the NSW Department of Community and Justice, is better resourced than GSAC. It will also give evacuees easier access to the nearby Disaster Recovery Centre at SCU to help in their recovery.

The Food Pantry at GSAC will remain open for the time being.

Council would like to thank the many hundreds of volunteers and those who donated to the GSAC Evacuation Centre. We could not have operated it without your generous support.

GSAC will not be returning to normal operations as it will continued to be used to assist in the recovery of Lismore and our community

We will keep you updated on the role of the facility once it is determined.

NORPA Youth participants in the first Street Shakespeare project.

NORPA Youth brings Shakespeare to the streets of Lismore.

The first public screening of NORPA Youth’s short film project ‘Street Shakespeare’ will light up the NORPA Studio at 5:30pm on Friday 4th March and everyone is welcome.

As part of the project, young participants explored selected works of William Shakespeare and developed professional techniques in the performance of classical text for the camera. The scenes and monologues were then professionally shot in urban locations across Lismore. The resulting 6 short films (approx. 5 mins each) will be screened at NORPA.

“Seeing young people tackle Shakespeare to the ground and make it their own is really fun to watch,” said Julian Louis, NORPA Artistic Director “Seeing Shakespeare on the streets of Lismore is also really thrilling. This is a great project for young people to engage with.”

The second Street Shakespeare project will commence in June and NORPA is now taking expressions of interest from young people who would like to be involved.

Come along and find out more about Street Shakespeare and the NORPA Youth program.
