Supporting refugees in detention and those living in the community Dangerously Poetic Press will be doing a benefit evening in Mullumbimby on Saturday, 4 March.
A fun and dynamic night of poetry, music and performance is on the cards with local songstress, Cass Curran performing from her new album, Travelling Home and troubadour Chris Mallory showing his talents alongside special guests. Up and coming young poet Jasmine Pierce will also be showcasing her work.
The theme of hope and belonging will help highlight the plight of refugees both in Australia and around the world. ‘Once a year we do a fundraiser,’ said organiser Laura Shore. ‘This year we chose the Ballina Region for Refugees to be beneficiaries, a group that offers moral support for people in detention and homestay hosting of refugees in our area.’
The event will take place at St. Martin’s Hall, 42 Stewart Street, Mullumbimby from 6.30 pm. A community dinner and wine will be available from 6.30 pm with events starting at 7 pm. A donation of $15 on the door.
