Operation Jeedera Screening

Wednesday, February 06, 2019 at 06:00 PM
Folklore Cafe in Port Adelaide, Australia
The Great Australian Bight is a precious piece of nature - a wilderness unlike anywhere else. Soaring cliffs and an ocean deepened in the bluest of hues. A place worth protecting.
A Nowegian oil giant, Equinor, is looking to exploit this, one of the last remaining wild places at the bottom of the world, I hope you feel just as outraged at the idea as we do!
 
Join us for a screening of Operation Jeedera to witness not only the beauty of this stretch of coast, but also to find out precisely what Big Oil’s plan is and more importantly, how we as a community can stop them in their tracks.
 
There will be delicious food and drink available for purchase with all profits going to The Wilderness Society.
 
I hope you can make it, alone you are powerful, together we are a force to be reckoned with.

Offshore Gas: Community Drop In

Thursday, February 07, 2019 at 05:30 PM
Newcastle City Hall in Newcastle , Australia

 

 

Have you heard? Gas company, Asset Energy, is planning its return to again blast deafening acoustic pulses into the ocean floor, just off Newcastle’s shore, in search of gas resources.

 

At “the earliest opportunity” the company aims to undertake 3D seismic testing over a shocking 500 sq kilometre area of our beautiful coastal waters, risking the navigation skills of dolphins and whales and impacting delicate marine ecosystems.

 

On Thursday, 7 February the Federal Department of Industry, Innovation and Science will host a community drop-in about the the regulation of the offshore gas industry and how you can have your say. This is an important chance to let those responsible know that the people of Newcastle, the Central Coast and Port Stephens will not let our beaches, marine ecosystems and coastal lifestyles be risked by dangerous fossil fuel extraction.

 

You will join a huge event that will show Asset Energy what to expect from the community this year, as the day it plans to blast our ocean floor draws closer. The coastline of Newcastle and surrounds could be dotted with risky gas rigs if we don't push back against exploration and development in the PEP11 zone.

 

Wear blue to symbolise the ocean that needs our help and join us outside Newcastle City Hall, at 5:30pm.


Where The Wild Things Are Festival - GFNP Biosphere

Saturday, February 09, 2019 at 12:00 PM
Ceres Environment Park in Brunswick East, Australia

Red Forest Productions, creators and curators of Where The Wild Things Are Arts and Music Festival have invited us to co-create the Biosphere space this year, an immersive multi-sensory forest experience in the heart of Brunswick. 

When: 12pm - 8pm, Saturday 9 February 2019
Where: Ceres Environment Park, Brunswick East, 3057
What: Chatting about the Great Forest National Park, Wilderness Society campaigns, selling merchandise, collecting petition signatures. In exchange for tending the stall, volunteers receive entry to the full festival experience.

Apply by RSVPing to this event.

The Biosphere will be an immersive and atmospheric space that transports people to the native forests of Victoria through all five senses.

An aromatic blend of gum, ironbark, eucalyptus, wattle and myrtle beeswax will waft through the air. Natural decor will be sustainably source and arranged to create the sense of being in the majestic Mountain Ash forests. The dome will be transformed into a green haven, with lights and projections that will add ambience and education images to the space.

The use of ambient DJ sets with native bird and animal sounds from Victoria will be added to the soundscape. Drumming circles and acoustic music sets will also be available throughout the day.

VR headsets will provide educational digital content and several projectors will illuminate the walls and ceilings with forest documentaries and bush landscape.

This is a relaxed educational space that asks only for people to enjoy and immerse themselves in the experience. Cushions and comfy places for people to sit will be provided. People can bring food and drink into the space and a theatrical campfire will be constructed in the middle to encourage people to gather around for communal seating. It will be a safe and inclusive space, where people of all ages and backgrounds can relax, interact and learn.
