Micah Projects Christmas Hamper Appeal 2019

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… for some.

Christmas can be a vulnerable time for the people we support, and so every Christmas Eve with the help of volunteers and supporters of Micah Projects we organise, pack, wrap and deliver over 500 food hampers and fresh fruit so that families and individuals in our community that are experiencing disadvantage have the opportunity to celebrate the festive season.

Children taken, parents left behind. As a nation our past informs our present.

For one night only, Dan Sultan’s rich and soulful voice will resonate through QPAC’s Concert Hall, with his memorable rock, roots and blues hooks. He will be joined by legendary Women in Voice artist Leah Cotterell whose work spans political cabaret to jazz and singer/songwriter, and Songwoman Maroochy of the Turrbal People.

Songs of Justice also features the combined voices of the QPAC Choir, Queensland Children’s Hospital Choir, Lotus Place Voices, With One Voice Brisbane, Songlines Choir, Freedom Train choir and the Absolutely Everybody Choir. Brisbane favourite Kay McGrath will MC the concert with The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce as the concert’s guest speaker.

Anti-Poverty Week Forum - Raise the Rate

"In a wealthy country like Australia, we should all have enough to put a roof over our head and food on the table. However, more than three quarters of a million people in communities across Australia live on unemployment and student payments that do not cover the cost of housing, food, transport and healthcare." (Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) raisetherate.org.au)

Free event | 10.30am – 12.30pm | Friday 18 October 2019 | Kurilpa Hall, 174 Boundary Street, West End Q 4101
