This stunning masterpiece created by wonderful Thailand artist Keattisak Tayana could soon be yours!

It was painted in 2015 with a worth of $800.00. Keattisak Tayana paintings often depict how globalisation has changed the cultural landscape of South East Asia. This gorgeous piece features a serene Buddha head embedded in majestic tree roots and was inspired by the Wat Mahathat Ayutthaya ancient temple in Thailand.

The Byron Community Centre is raffling off this painting to one lucky art lover. The raffle will be drawn on the 20th December at BCC’s Christmas party. For your chance to win, buy your ticket at the BCC reception.

😥indeed....”Human connection costs us nothing, but means everything to those with so little to call their own.”

very said and we always remember Chris's smile and yes, "Human connection costs us nothing, but means everything to those with so little to call their own."

Thank you for posting this. Chris was my dear friend and I really miss him. His tribute at the community breakfast has stayed with me and it makes it a little easier knowing how loved and respected he was in the community.

Every soul has a story.
Great things can happen when great ideas and stories are shared! The Coffee BOX Listeners is launching this October, during Mental Health Month. "The idea is that ordinary people meet and share with other people, breaking down isolation, loneliness and sharing our humanity” explains Lisa Apostolides, Director of Byron Youth Theatre and one of the program coordinators.

Lisa, along with Cherie Bromley, Community Programs Manager, Pippy Wardell, Volunteer Hub Co-ordinator, Anna Parker, Communication Coach and Margie O’Sullivan, Counsellor will be coordinating the program by offering a Deep Listening training session at the Community Centre on Thursday 27th September from 2pm - 3.30pm.

Every Thursday in October from 10am - 12pm, trained volunteers will be at the Coffee BOX to listen to whoever wants to come and share. The Coffee BOX is located next to the Post Office on Jonson St, Byron Bay. We encourage you all to buy a cuppa to help support the local initiative and you can also buy a “pay-it-forward” cuppa for those who cannot afford one.

To register your interest please complete a volunteers application online at www.byroncentre.com.au or call 6685 6807 or visit the Community Centre between 10- 4pm, Monday to Fridays. In this training, Anna Parker and Margie O’Sullivan, will present useful tips for becoming a listener as you share a cuppa at the Coffee Box.

The Byron Community Centre shower project has been providing hot showers for the homeless. 2 hours a day, 2 days a week for the past 2 years. However, to say that’s all there is to it is an understatement. After a day without, that feeling of a shower can be a transformation for both body and soul. The shower project has become a centre for solace and service where people arrive awash with their baggage and can set it down to enjoy the simple pleasures like a shave, a haircut and a cuppa, or in Grant's case, getting all ethereal while his guitar wails those blues.

In May 2018 71 vulnerable community members accessed our hot showers at the Byron Community Cabin. For the community members who access the showers, being able to connect with community services, ensuring personal hygiene needs are being met, and sitting down for a cup of tea and a chat all have an immeasurable impact on day-to-day life. Although community showers won’t solve homelessness, it does fill a massive gap in available support for those without a home in our community.

A local charity has just committed $12,000 to a temporary homeless shelter being developed by the Byron Community Centre. The charity, Global Ripple, operates out of an unassuming yet thriving little Op Shop in Byron’s Industrial Estate and puts 100% of its money into direct aid.

“There is an increasing amount of people living in desperate need right here in Byron Shire. We are strong believers in collaboration and really feel joining forces can make a huge difference to those who we are trying to help. I could not imagine what it would be like to have no roof over my head when those harsh storms and rains come through, I feel this is a much-needed facility for our local homeless” Global Ripple Founder Jacqui Boyett said.

When Jacqui met Shanti Des Fours, who is developing the Wet Weather Shelter Project, it was a perfect match. The project is providing temporary shelter, bedding, food and drinks and material aid during extreme wet weather.

“Despite the increased affluence in our region, or perhaps because of it, the number of people losing their homes and falling through the cracks in Byron Bay is growing” explains Shanti Des Fours. “Homelessness up by 14 percent since the last census.” She said.

Byron Bay has the second highest number of rough sleepers in NSW and yet there is currently no shelter (day or night) for people who are homeless.

“We are essentially experiencing a crisis. Our state government is not responding. So, with the help of organisations like Jacqui’s, we are doing it ourselves.” Explains Shanti Des Fours.

“At a basic level, this project is providing shelter for rough sleepers during periods of intense rain, thus providing for their physical needs of keeping dry, warm, and safe. More than that, this project enables dignity for these rough sleepers, caring for them when in need.” Explains Reverend Greer Dokmanovic, Minister of Byron’s Uniting Church - which will act as one of the temporary shelters.

The Byron Community Showers Project is based at the Byron Community Cabins. The project is provided by the Byron Community Centre in collaboration with the Byron Shire Council. The project provides a supervised and safe environment where people experiencing homelessness can access hot showers, laundry facilities, toiletries, clothes, weekly haircuts, service information, and general support from trained volunteers, and trained community service workers.

The showers project runs for two hours, two days a week - Monday and Wednesday from 10am to 12pm. People are able to sign up to have a shower at Liberation Larder (on a Monday) and the Homeless Breakfast (on a Wednesday) from 8am. Both programs are run at the Byron Community Centre. There is no “drop-in” component for the showers project.

Have you heard about our Coffee BOX?
The Coffee BOX is an innovative and inspiring not for profit social enterprise cafe providing workplace training to people in need.

How does it work?
We sell coffee to the public while training and supporting local people, particularly women, to transition out of disadvantage and homelessness into employment.

Our Impact:
25 people have participated in the training so far and expressed overwhelmingly positive feedback about their experience. These people have been able to acquire the skills necessary to re-enter the local workforce, as well as increase their self-confidence and their participation in our community.

We just launched a Street Gallery at our Coffee BOX! We're offering artists an opportunity to create and exhibit temporary public works as part of a rotation of short-term outdoor exhibitions.

“We want to provide an engaging new space for artists to experiment with new formats, showcase their work, engage in cultural exchange and access new audiences while creating a vibrant active public art space.” Explains Shanti Des Fours, Gallery Coordinator.

The first round of works are by Verity Nunan, her works offer a moving insight into the people who live in public space in Byron Bay.

“These are the storylines of all the members of the community that I have met through my research. I wanted to tell a bigger story about the Byron Shire and the incredible amount of people who live in the bush or depend on public space to survive…” Explains Verity.

The project was sponsored by Byron Bay Mitre 10. It will be on display at the Coffee BOX, located between the Post Office and the Community Centre. Open hours are 8:30-1:30pm - Monday to Saturday. To find out more contact Shanti at [email protected]

Give a little. Change a lot. We're celebrating National Volunteer Week here at the BCC and want to say a special THANK YOU to all our volunteers who are contributing their time and skills every day to our cause.

At the moment there are approximately 50-60 volunteers involved in activities at the centre each week. Overall, there are currently 480 volunteers registered in our database.

There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer for us, they range from shifts at our reception or the BOX Office to administrative tasks or communication work. Volunteers are also crucial to the Community Services team, the Byron Theatre and the Byron Markets. The centre simply could not operate without the support of volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering for us, get in touch today!

Give a little. Change a lot. Michael's volunteer story.

Michael combines his love of writing and meeting new people to create 'Who’s In The House?' – an emailed publication with a photo which seeks to curb the “passing ships in the night” phenomena that can happen as volunteers come and go, doing their thing at the Byron Community Centre. Volunteers tell as little or as much about themselves as they feel comfortable sharing. “The range and depth of volunteer’s’ life experiences are extraordinary, and the passion, joy, skill and commitment they bring to a wide range of activities is simply inspiring. I regularly get feedback on how much their lives are enhanced through helping others and through connection with other caring people.” #NVW2018

Give a little. Change a lot. Linda's volunteer story.

Linda volunteers at the Byron Community Centre and coordinates a program called Money Matters. She tells this story:

“A few years ago I sat down with a client who was experiencing financial hardship and had come to the Community Centre for help. We spent some time together creating a manageable budget. She was open to making some changes and with encouragement she regained her confidence and trust in a better future. I was happy to come across her in a retail store where she is now working. She recognised me and said how working together making a budget for her had changed her life.” #NVW2018

GIVE A LITTLE. CHANGE A LOT.
The Byron Community Centre and the Volunteer Hub celebrate National Volunteer Week 21-27 May 2018.
Give a little. Change a lot. What a great slogan! What a great concept! So many empowering stories! And the benefits spread in all directions.
Volunteering time, energy and empathy for the betterment of those less well-off is nothing new – humankind has been supporting and loving and encouraging each other since the beginning of time – it makes us unique as a species. Battling the forces of darkness that would drag us down – poverty, hunger, homelessness, natural disaster and crazy political greed-fuelled ambition is countered by qualities of affirmative action, care and compassion. Here, in the Byron Shire, we are proud of our record of reaching out to those in need.
In the upcoming week we will share inspiring stories of our volunteers and the impact their contributions have every day. #NVW2018

We are excited to announce that after one year in operation the Coffee BOX is now thriving.

While still in its early stages, this program has already had a profound impact on the lives of our participants: In 2017, 100% of our Coffee BOX graduates reported an increase in their confidence. 👏

Comfy bums for Byron Theatre - It's not too late to help us buy new seats!!

We have reached almost 50% of our comfy bums target, all thanks to your generous donations!! But there's still some way to go.

The 250 seats and carpet in Byron Theatre are in need of replacement. Arts NSW has provided nearly 50% of the cost. Now we need to raise just over $60,000 to make it happen – that’s only $250 for each seat!

The Byron Community Centre, which houses the Byron Theatre, is a social enterprise providing support to the arts and community services in the local community. From time-to- time we need to fundraise for various activities and infrastructure. This time it is to refurbish our beloved Byron Theatre. It’s the first facelift in 15 years!

Your contribution will make a permanent difference!

Your generous donations will be used to replace all 250 seats in the theatre and to lay new carpet. This will ensure theatre patrons will continue to enjoy a comfortable and absolutely fabulous experience in the Byron Theatre for years to come!

Click on the Donate button and help us reach our target. It’s not too late to help us buy new seats!
