Trivia is BACK baby! That's right, Done By Law's legendary trivia night returns to light up the social calendars of the best and brightest minds in Melbourne. Expect another evening of sparkling wit, cunning competition and of course, the glorious glory of sweet sweet victory (which could be yours by the way). This your first year? Welcome!! You might just be the best among us, but you'll have to strut your stuff to prove it! And yes, before you faint - the competition will end, as it always does, with limbo, and it will be fabulous. Why are we assembling you ask? To raise much needed funds for the incredible 3CR, the fiercely grassroots radio station which hosts Done By Law. Friday 21 October at Collingwood Town Hall. More information and tickets here.
Three scientists walk into a bar ... and start asking you about obscure sci-fi and science news stories! You're at Lost in Science trivia, back from a long hiatus. Part of National Science Week, this amazing, entertaining, intellectually stimulating night is a fundraiser for 3CR, so entry is $20 per person. Teams are a maximum of 6 people and reservations via email@example.com are essential. Pay online (details via email) or with cash on the night.
Uprise Radio and Stick Together program teams have combined forces to bring you an afternoon of lively discussion and music. In the face of imminent climate collapse, floods, fires and pandemics, it is critical that we take action. We are thrilled to host a panel discussion to hear about strategy, tactics and solidarity. Joining the panel will be Natarsha Napanangka Bamblett, Zelda Grimshaw - Blockade Australia, Dr. Colin Long - Sustainability Campaigner from Trades Hall Victoria and Anthony Kelly - Melbourne Activist Legal Support. Stick around afterwards for the tunes laid down by some of the best local legends: Les Thomas, Maxine Fink and Sooty Owls. There'll be food, refreshments, a 3CR stall and a RAFFLE, with a choice selection of prizes. Tickets are $10, with a solidarity option for an amount of your choosing. Of course, no one turned away. 3-7pm Saturday 23 July, Black Spark Cultural Space, 126A Gladstone Ave, Northcote (accessible tram stop 30 on Route 11). You can get tickets here, and full event details here.
