For one night on Friday, November the 29th, over 20 works will be available for purchase via a silent auction at Work-Shop Melbourne with 100% of proceeds going to the Bob Brown Foundation. The Bob Brown Foundation do amazing on-ground work and the much-needed funds will be used to protect more scenic land environments, wildlife and marine ecosystems in Tasmania, around Australia, in Antarctica and across our region.
This is a free event but we do suggest a small donation upon entry, bring cash for the night but we will have a means of taking ETFPOS donations. Alcohol donated by Bodriggy Brewing Co. will be available on a donation basis, NO BYO.
The fundraiser and works are themed around climate action, our government’s inaction, and the unique situation we find ourselves in during the age of the Anthropocene. We cannot afford further biodiversity loss, and in the eleventh hour when our leaders should be doing everything possible to preserve our unique natural world, shortsighted profit always comes first. We can see this in the political reluctance to move away from coal, Labour’s treatment of indigenous heritage, in particular, the Djab Wurrung birthing trees, and how large scale deforestation is happening right under our noses and not just in the Amazon.
Raffle prizes will be available on the night, these have been kindly donated so far by Ethique, JOCO Cups, Black Cat and more TBA.
