Stories on Foot and Labyrinth
Byron Bay Sacred Waters Labyrinth
As I took visitors and locals along the foreshore telling stories of place in place, I came to see how a place-making event could activate some of the open air spaces there.
On November 2 and 3, my friend, artist Jacquelina Wills installed an ephemeral labyrinth dedicated to the Sacred Waters along the grassy Byron Bay foreshore, with help from me and her partner, Peter Hensen . The Byron Shire Council gave us a small seed grant, but asked we make it last a month. If you’d like to stay up to date on the labyrinth developments, ‘LIKE’ our FB page https://www.facebook.com/labyrinthforbyron, subscribe to Story Tree newsletter or read more at http://www.storiesonfoot.com/labyrinth.
In the New Year, when Jacquelina and I get back from our respective travels, we hope to write more about the amazing experiences, synergies and synchronicities which have happened since we created the labyrinth there.
I have won a 50% scholarship to do labyrinth facilitators training mid January which I am looking forward to also. If you would like to make a contribution towards the other 50% and/or travel costs you can do so at our Chuffed crowdfunding campaign.
Below is the press release I sent to the Echo which is printed on p 63.
