Festival offers a Full Spectrum

THIS is one event designed with a fresh take on the festival scene.

Local groups Elemental Education and Dreamjester Productions are presenting us with Full Spectrum, a workshop symposium and music festival on August 17-19.  

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, near Uki, NSW, Full Spectrum has organised a line up of workshops and lectures on a range of skills and subjects, with the aim of promoting a broader view of art and education.  

"Full Spectrum is the first in what we hope will be a long line of intentional festivals - a more education-focused, holistic envisioning of the current festival scene," Elemental Education spokesperson Lilly Moody said.  

Interested in organic gardening, permaculture and sustainable design,  dance, musical and artistic composition, art therapy or positive psychology? This is for you.  

Full Spectrum is also offering a cracking musical line up to go with all the learning, including live performances from Lubdub and Mystic Beats, talented local artists AvaDub and Didjital, international guest Flow Theory (pictured) and Splendour in the Grass performers Ghettafunkt and Nathan Kaye.  

Included in the ticket price is a free banquet dinner starting at 8:00 pm on August 17, sourced primarily from local and organic producers.   

"In addition there will be hot showers, bonfires, undercover stages, markets, the Renegade Café, fire performances and circus workshops," Lilly said.  

Check it out at elementaleducation.org or get along to the Happy Herb Shop in Harbour Drive, Coffs Harbour for tickets.
