The Solar Culture Ark, or simply The ARK, is a multipurpose community asset. It will allow off-grid cultural events to be held in remote or unusual places. Imagine a Jazz concert in a cow paddock, an art festival on the beach, or a poetry night in our town streets. The Ark can be a stage, an exhibition place, a production office, an art workshop or simply a base for safe storage. We have fitted out a 6 m. shipping container with its own solar powered electrical supply, basic staging infrastructure, an internal storage system as well as tables, chairs and a workbench. The fit out can be expanded on, to create temporary smaller size cultural event.
The ARK is a vessel that contains the possibility for almost every artistic expression of humankind, waiting to be let out so we can have the means to sail and land anywhere.
The Ark is a community asset, free for any not for profit cultural use in the Byron Shire, bar the cost of moving it. Bookings can be requested on-line here. Members of Creative Mullumbimby will contact you for further details. For profit organisations or events can hire the Ark for a fee. Donations are always welcome of course. If you are interested but not sure, you can explore the Ark further by downloading the manuals here.
