Prepare yourself for Unfuck The World Day

What is the idea behind Unfuck The World Day? The purpose of UTW Day is to connect people who wish to create change in their communities and inspire others to do the same. It was started in 2013 by the organisation Unfuck The World (based in LA). Our idea for this year’s UTW Day is to raise funds for local non-profit Helping Hands while showcasing local artists.
 
Tell us about Helping Hands Mission. They’re an amazing not-for-profit based in Victoria that receives no funding from the government. Their Emergency Aid Program feeds 600+ families a week through four Community Pantries. Their Material Aid Program provides furniture, white goods, bedding and clothing to 80+ charities and agencies. They also run seven opportunity shops around Victoria that supply low cost quality items to the community.
 
What performances will there be at The Dancing Dog Café for the event? There will be music performances from Augustine Ang, Bad Bangs (as a duo), Maja, Miriam Falloon, Trees For Ruru and Ativandal and spoken word performances by Catherine French, Flux, Christopher James White, Michael Reynolds and Nikki J.
 
Besides music, what else is going on? There’ll be a mini art and craft market including jewellery, photography, visual art and sculpture from artists and crafters including Art & Dharma, Deep Rez Creations, NC Qin, Alice Lamont, lunaloop, Bella Johnson, Erin Kirkpatrick, Karl Hüttenmeister, Megan Dennis and Tom Cartoonist. There’ll also be baked treats for sale and raffle prizes to be won (donated by local businesses) and you can get your face painted or a cartoon portrait done.

Unfuck The World Day goes down at Dancing Dog Café, Footscray on Saturday June 9 from 3pm – 8pm. Donations on entry are encouraged and there’ll be raffle tickets for $5 for sale, with all proceeds going towards Helping Hands Mission.
