We are Not Numbers

Sunday, 21 April 2024 - 3:00pm
Theare Royal, Castlemaine
Dja Dja Wurrung Country

Gaza is unsafe, with Palestinians living in tents or temporary shelters, lacking essentials like water, food, and electricity. Aid is insufficient for the over two million residents due to blockages.

On the 21st of April 2024, join us at the Theatre Royal as we show our solidarity and raise much needed funds for the people of Gaza. All proceeds will go to providing much needed food, water, and electricity for the writers (and their families) from We Are Not Numbers (WANN), who—despite the very real fear of being killed—are continuing to write and tell their stories.

This will be a peaceful event with music from The Double Dole String Band, Eliza Hull, Baby Velvet, Charlie Needs Braces, Angie Hart, Nokomi Achkar, and The Freedom Singers. With poetry by Andy Jackson and Declan Furber Gillick.

There’ll be an art auction and a raffle made up of donations by Castlemaine’s incredible local businesses. There will also be screen printing on the day, so bring along your t-shirts!

Food and drinks at bar prices.

Auslan Interpreted. Accessible Venue.
