Lennox Head residents who oppose the proposal to build a 35metre ski jump training facility at Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Camp will gather at the surf club at this month’s full moon and howl.
In an artistic response to the proposed eleven story Olympic Ski Jump at Lake Ainsworth, the Lennox Arts Board Inc. (LAB) is hosting a group ‘Howl of Protest’. The howl, timed to take place on the full moon, will be held on May 11 at 5pm in front of the Lennox Head Surf Lifesaving Club.
This will be an art event featuring performance artists. The group ‘Howl’ will be recorded by a filmmaker, with the Welcome to Country by Traditional Owner, Lois Cook to start proceedings.
Dogs on leads are invited and attendees are asked, as this is a solemn occasion, to wear black.
LAB Vice President, Melissa Wright, said that the group is appalled at the proposal which will desecrate our unspoiled coastline.
‘The ‘Howl of Protest’ is an opportunity for people to express their outrage at this ridiculous proposal’ said Melissa. ‘Locals and visitors love Lennox for its small-town vibe and natural beauty. This ski-jump will negatively effect the very thing that they love about the village’.
The Lennox Head Against the Ski Jump Group will be on hand to provide information on how people can best make their voice heard.
