Newrybar Merchants and Harvest celebrate International Womens Day, 8th March 2019

February 13, 2019 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Newrybar Merchants and Harvest Newrybar have teamed up to host an International Womens Day 2019 fundraiser on Friday 8th March from 12pm.

The event begins at Newrybar Merchants with the opening of Byron Bay based artist Kat Bak’s ‘Romantica’ exhibition and live music from Leeli, followed by a three course lunch at Harvest Restaurant with a host of inspiring Australian women sharing their stories. Special guest speakers include Ella Bancroft, Sophie Kovic founder of Seed & Sprout, Pru Chapman founder of Owners Collective and Future Dreamers.

The ticket price is $150 per person with $50 from each ticket to go directly to Future Dreamers, a not-for-profit all inclusive girls club inspiring young women aged 12-25 to follow their dreams.

Join this inspiring afternoon which includes raffle prizes and genuine conversation with female producers from this collaborative community.

Melbourne-born, Byron based Kat Bak will open her exhibition ‘Romantica’ at Newrybar Merchants in alignment with International Womens Day and as part of the Newrybar Merchants Pop-Up Artist program. Through simplistic minimal lines and fluctuating brushstrokes and tone, Kat’s work focuses on abstract elements of the human landscape; in particular the wondrous female form. Through the series she explores notions of connection, reflection, and the ideals we have within our closest relationships; between lovers, family, friends and ourselves.


Ella Noah Bancroft is an Australian born artist, storyteller, teacher, director and mentor, as well as founder of sustainable clothing brand ‘Yhi’. She is a poetic feminist whose passion in protecting the earth fuels her projects. Ella has a no B*** S*** approach to life and works to bring about awareness on current political issues, including the environment, womens issues and Indigenous rights.


Seed & Sprout founder Sophie Kovic’s goal is to reduce reliance on single-use plastics by creating tools that help everyday people make healthy choices, easily. Impelled by the frustration of not being able to find a zero waste packaging solution for her son’s school lunches, Sophie set out to create practical products that are bridging the gap between the ideal and the action of committing to a sustainable future.


Business mentor, strategist, speaker and Owners Collective founder Pru Chapman was once told by a client that working with her was like hauling your business through an intense Crossfit session followed by a double espresso and a lazy triathlon. With over 15 years in business strategy, psychology and leadership developments, Pru has worked with thousands of clients from start-ups and early entrepreneurs to big business.


Leeli is a Byron Bay local whose musical journey has seen her perform across the globe and alongside some of Australia’s finest young musicians. Her sweet, soulful voice draws on influences ranging from Bob Dylan and Fleetwood Mac to Glen Hansard and Jack White. She has a unique brand of folk pop characterised by intricately crafted songs that tell stories from her life and travels.


Future Dreamers is the ultimate Girls Club located in the heart of Byron Bay, where they hold events, workshops, backyard gigs, art classes, dance and study sessions for FREE for girls aged 12-25. The not-for-profit inspires young women to embrace their uniqueness and the magic of coming together; that creativity is awesome and the future is what you make it.
