Bringing together the threads of issues I hold dear at our humble poet’s cottage. I have wanted to have an event like this at the cottage for almost a year now and the time has come …
So we are hosting a fundraising Poetry, Prose and Story event around the topic of the refugee and asylum seeker experience.
7 awesome presenters. 🌿We will be showcasing the lineup over the next few days.
This is a fundraiser with proceeds going to Yass Rural Australians for Refugees (YRAR) to add to the funds that YRAR has already raised and donated to the Geoff McPherson Canberra Refugee Support Scholarships for 2019. These scholarships offer valuable assistance to students from refugee and asylum seeker background by supplementing their educational resources.
YRAR will be providing nibbles and snacks, tea and coffee. YASSarts providing microphone and PA.
BYO drink if you prefer plonk 🍷🍾
Some books are being offered up by kind souls for a Silent Auction, there will also be other written offerings you may want to purchase.
You are also invited to donate a book, DVD to the YRAR Library that is being held at Boree Log Cottage on issues of peoples fleeing persecution, war and conflict. We will be offering you a sneak peak at the collection that we have already started. The borrowing has already begun.
