Iluka Emporium awarded NRCF Grant to facilitate Free Creative Workshops

Iluka Emporium Inc., is thrilled to announce that we were successful in being awarded a grant for $10,000 from the Northern Rivers Community Fund for our project
‘Creative Workshops for Wellbeing, Resilience and Conservation’.
These creative workshops and exhibitions will be free to the community and will be facilitated over a 6 month period from February 2022. After the devastation of the fires and impact of COVID19 our project addresses the need for community members to interconnect and be creative thereby promoting a sense of well-being and resilience using sustainable materials.
President Michelle Philip and Treasurer Linda Frylink Anderson attended the awards night in Byron Bay on the 1st of December. We are one of 49 community organisations to be successful. Thank you to all the sponsors of NRCF.


From Monday 11th October, we are required to follow the NSW Government latest public health directives when you visit the Emporium. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our visitors and volunteers.

As usual you will continue to

  • Check in using the QR code and
  • Wear a mask
    From Monday:
  • Only people who are double vaccinated for COVID19 can visit so we will need to see your vaccination certificate (or medical exemption) as well as your QR check in before entering. This is so we can manage our work health and safety risks and comply with Public Health Orders. Your information will be kept private.

From December the 15th, we will be able to welcome both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors back in to the Emporium again.

Please keep an eye on our social media pages for any updates or changes.

We hope you’ll bear with us during this time – we’ll do everything we can to make your visit as smooth as possible, but as you’d expect, we’re navigating some serious logistics as we facilitate exciting new art experiences for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you for your inspiring and sustaining presence on line during recent challenging times. We’ll continue to stay connected with our amazing art-loving community on social media, our website and monthly newsletter. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you

Welcome back to Iluka Emporium Lucy Car! “The World is still a beautiful place.
The world is still full of beauty, despite the hardships we face. We can enjoy nature around us whatever we are going through. In fact, it can help us, soothe us and bring joy to our eyes and a smile to our hearts. These pieces are trying to highlight some beautiful parts of nature I have noticed recently and I hope you enjoy them.”
