Hey Maker! presents - 30 days $11 700 - A fundraiser
On Friday 22 June, Northern NSW based creative collective Hey Maker! launched a 30 day fundraising drive on the Australian crowd funding website pozible.com. Hey Maker! is seeking to raise $11 700 which is the minimum amount required to open the doors to what will be Murwillumbah's new creative workshop hub.
They Hey Maker! Vision
Hey Maker's vision is to inhabit a beautiful art deco space in Murwillumbah - one of many in the town that currently stands vacant - to establish a platform to showcase the artists, designers, makers and crafters of the Tweed Valley region.

Who's behind the fabulous Hey Maker! Collective?
Tweed Valley artists and creatives Belinda Smith, Ellie Beck, Jo Olive, Kathy Egan and Christy Mcleod are the founding members of Hey Maker! Their first weekend workshop in April, PotatoPrintPopUp was held at Verge Landscape Architect studio and enjoyed great success with over 200 participants joining in to create an art installation that remained on the studio wall. Two equally successful events followed, “Paper Bunting Make & Take” at Hosanna Farmstay’s ANZAC day celebrations and World Environment Day’s interactive nature installation and pinwheel making. All Hey Maker! workshops utilise recycled materials with a focus on creating art using affordable everyday objects.
