We will need considerable funds to bring people in from many communities, help with accommodation (either camping or billets, or hostels for frail/aged people), hire a venue, provide food, materials for holding workshops and so on.
Efforts to date
We have received a generous donation from supporters in Melbourne. On 25th March we had our first fundraiser for ‘Stand Up 2017’ – 10 years of the intervention at Watch This Space. A great turn out, full house, with delicious kangaroo tail stew and damper and chai. The movie Murundak is an awesome doco of Aboriginal protest music, and we saw some shorts of contemporary conditions. Thankyou Pat Ansell-Dodds for welcome, and Barb Shaw and Sylvia Purrurle Neale for their speeches. A great night. Thanks to everyone.
FUTURE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS
We will be holding a major music event on Saturday 6th May. Note: venue is yet to be finalised.
Line up includes Desert Divas, Warren H. Williams, Wiggles of Judas, Darwin Hip Hop duo Symbiotic, local group Karnage and Darnis, Senor Pato, DJs Wrong Banana and Bee Sting.
Further details in the near future.
