The Overtopping

A man stands trapped on a bridge as the Flood waters rise. Another escapes from an island of rats swimming through a sea of spiders to reach the rising sun and safety. These are true stories based around the extreme weather event Cyclone Debbie and its impact on Lismore.

The Overtopping is an overlapping of collected narratives and images set to original live music, both moving and still like a flood of live art!





Waste to Art!

An exciting new collaboration between RealArtWorks.Inc and Northern Rivers Waste. A series of artists in residencies will take place on site at the Waste Centre.
