I was there when Kyogle Bazaar faced closure.
In 2017 I was a stallholder for Kyogle Bazaar when management could no longer continue. Nobody wanted this little rural creative arts hub to fail. I stepped up and became coordinator.
I found my happy place where the community gathers to share our passions and celebrate the diversity our community provides. It isn’t about commerce, politics, religion, although all these things are present.
It’s to showcase the ‘vibe’ of all of us to be welcome and free to just be.
One day every month to listen, connect, share, and accept. We are not all the same and that is who we are.
It’s very Kyogle.
