Childrens Ground Fundraiser
Melba Spiegeltent, Johnston Street, Collingwood. Victoria
On May 27, be part of an incredible celebration of music and culture at the Melba Spiegeltent, featuring national icons, artists and storytellers Archie Roach and Shane Howard, with the Black Rock Band from West Arnhem Land.
This unforgettable evening will raise funds for Children's Ground, a bold not-for-profit organisation aiming to celebrate First Nations cultures and knowledge systems, create life-long opportunities to end intergenerational disadvantage in First Nations communities and reset the national policy framework based on equity and justice.
Children's Ground represents the first integrated and long-term effort to stand beside First Nations families while they design the future they want for their children. It means putting the next generation first. It means prioritising people's family language, culture, identity and country. It means prioritising lifelong learning and wellbeing of children from birth. It means creating opportunities that will build opportunity in global and local economies. We cannot accept conditions that lead to children living with life-long risks of incarceration, ill health, child protection and cultural stress. The current approaches are unacceptable and need to change. All children deserve the best life has to offer and to be honoured in their cultures. This is Children’s Ground. Please join us to celebrate the future generations and the children, families and communities who lead Children’s Ground.
