Artists For Australia
A Bushfire Concert
The 2019-2020 Australian bushfire season has been devastating for the eastern half of the country. More than five million hectares have burned — imagine fires completely devastating Nova Scotia. Wildlife casualties number in the hundreds of millions. People have been displaced, and there have been deaths.
Artists For Australia can’t put out the fires. But we can contribute to relief efforts through two worthy charities: the Rural Fire Service of New South Wales, which coordinates volunteer firefighting efforts across that state; and WIRES, the Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service of New South Wales. WIRES volunteers have rescued thousands of animals from these fires.
Open your ears for Megan Jerome, Andrea Simms-Karp, Chris Page, Trevor Alguire and more for a night of great songs, and open your eyes for visual arts and merchandise up for silent auction at this unique evening of music and community building for the best of causes.
Artists For Australia is sponsored by Ottawa Tonite, CKCU, and Arts Court Theatre. See you there!
