Defend the Dingo: Art Gallery Fundraiser

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

TICKETS: Tickets can be purchased through a donation of your choice or by the recommended General Admission price.

Join us for an evening of art, food, drinks & entertainment at Black Spark Cultural Centre in Northcote to raise funds for the first ever National Inaugural First Nations Dingo Forum, hosted by the Girringun Aboriginal Corporation. Donated artworks will be available for purchase on the night, with all artwork depicting Australian wildlife and their habitat, and - for First Nations only - cultural significance to Country.

All proceeds will go towards the Forum, which will bring Elders, Traditional Owners and other stakeholders together to discuss the controversy surrounding the native Dingo, and serve as an opportunity to ensure their cultural rights and obligations to protect the Dingo are heard.

There will be a bar where alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks can be purchased (100% of drink proceeds will go to Black Spark Cultural Centre), as well as some generously donated food from Red Sparrow Pizza, Vegie Tribe, and more (TBA). Defend the Dingo merchandise designed by artist Minna Leunig will be available during the event, as well as a chocolate raffle by House of Nestar.

A free public viewing of the gallery will be available on Sunday the 2nd of July between 11am - 6pm where purchased artwork can be collected.
