Revolution - Saturday 9th March @ Seymour Centre:

This will be a night to reach out and change people’s thoughts and attitudes. Through thought provoking performances and a visual feast of entertainment, this evening will be a celebration of wonderful performances whilst raising much needed funds for two remarkable organizations, The Factory Community Centre, and iEtiquette, Inc. a program for young and adult indigenous women to find their passion and re-establish their lives and careers.

Some celebrities are tipped to complete the line of performers and well known Australian talent such as Briden Starr (X-Factor), Dani Da Ros (The Voice) and Dancers from VPA who recently won the National Showcase dance Championships at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast. More will be revealed closer to the night.
The evening of entertainment will also include gift bags for the VIP Area tickets and ALL ticket holders will be placed in the draw for some amazing gifts.
So join the Revolution – it will be a night to remember!

For more information visit or call 9351 7940.

Lift Redfern Update
Since the Parliamentary debate in August last year regarding the lack of access at Redfern station the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan was released. It recognises an upgrade at Redfern is needed but sees it as a medium term priority, which means we could be waiting another 5 – 10 years for any work to begin at the station.

The 2nd
phase of the campaign will see a push for lifts to be installed immediately on platforms 11 & 12 under the Transport Access Programme as an interim measure to relieve some of the pressure for people travelling via Redfern station.
Would you like to be involved in the Lift Redfern campaign during the 2nd phase? Then contact

UNSETTLING SUITE’S - Performance Space at Carriageworks between 23 Feb-10 Mar
UNSETTLING SUITE’s live performance/visual arts installation by Sarah-Jane Norman is pure Australian-Aboriginal history written on blood and bones.

Norman is an artist of mixed British and Aboriginal descent, and
Unsettling Suite is a powerfully personal work mixing live performance and a permanent visual arts installation that speak of broader historical truths about who we are in the face of our colonial past.
